    The great raid by William B Breuer- He has about 19 other titles as well that topic WWII.

    The real wild west by Michael Wallis- He also has other titles that topic Route 66 and American culture.

    The politically incorrect guide to...by Clint Johnson- I've read the PIG(pol inc gde) to the South and to the Constitution. He also has titles that cover the civil war and other books in the PIG series.

    I don't have much time before work, but are these books and the ones you're referring to fiction or non-fiction?

    The great raid you already have in movie form at the aStore. Its about the WWII Ranger rescue at Cabanatuan, non-fiction.

    Michael Wallis is non-fiction, American history and pop-culture.

    Clint Johnson is history and govt, non-fiction. I have the mentioned titles but like the Authors, plan on reading them sometime.

    Thanks Johnny... I've got the two non-fiction military history titles you listed, but I've yet to create categories for fiction, and will need to create something for political history.
