This is my first thread on this site at the moment i am reading "Panzer commander" by Hans Von Luck this book is a excellant read if you love exploits of Rommel and Afrika armee and takes you though the start of the Polish campaign all the way through to April 1945 its pacted full of action its well writen very easy to read and shows a little piece of history from personal point of view if you haven't read it i would recomend you find it i don't have the link but type in Hans Von Luck you would get . I was suprised about my perception towards ww2 and that people had lives back then in amongst the chaos . If anyone has read it i would like to know your views about it good or bad :) :) :) Also whats your favourite book current or past :) :) :)

RADM Eugene B Fluckey's Thunder Below has always been a favorite of mine.

I don't have a single favorite, but it's hard to beat "Band of Brothers." It's an easy read and inspiring too.

Five out of eight...not bad. :) How was "Sniper on the Eastern Front"?

One of my favorites. It pulls no punches, isn't terribly long, and it describes in very gritty detail the horrors of the Eastern Front. In some ways it puts even The Forgotten Soldier to shame. I especially liked it. I'd recommend it to anybody.

One of my favorites is A Bridge Too Far by Cornelius Ryan. Great history, great story, great writing.
