    Carlyon's "Great War" and Lundstrom's "Guadacanal ( sic ) and the First Team". I continue to pour over my growing Friedman collection.

    The Damage Done by Australian Warren Fellows - his story of 12 years in a Bangkok prison following a conviction for possession of heroin in 1978. Seems like the Thai's do things the right way with regard to drugs and the condition of their prisons!

    Sometimes things dont end up how they should, a son, a brother, a mentor, a teacher, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson and a god in my eyes.

    No sir, I refuse to register on a forum if the name - xerxes - is not available

    Just about!

    "Lexikon der gesampten Therapie"

    Both volumes. Liberated - if you will - from a recent trip to Riga. Sick Nazi bastards. Who knew they had so much venerial disease. Even in '35. Dirty perverts!

    Harold Coyle

    Tuesday is when the new books come out at Barnes & Noble. Today I picked up Harold Coyle's (with Barrett Tillman) new novel Pandora's Legion, It's been a while for anything new by him, I'm looking forward to reading it.

    "Khrushchev's Cold War" by Aleksandr Fursenko and Timothy Naftali. A great read. Unfortunately, the research access given to these writers has been reduced by the Putin government for future writers/researchers of the Cold War.

    Next on deck for me:
    "1491" By Charles Mann. "New revelations of the Americas before Columbus."

    "Mornings On Horseback" by David McCullough. "The story of an extraordinary family, a vanished way of life, and the unique child who became Theodore Roosevelt." Everything I've read by McCullough so far has been excellent.

    "The End Of Barbary Terror" by Frederick Leiner. "Americas's 1815 war against the pirates of North Africa."
