  • What Book Are You Reading?

    Simple. Just list the book you're reading at the time of posting.

    I just finished Panzer Commander by Oberst Hans von Luck. Excellent read, I highly recommend it.

      Two right now, I'll list the one in English, as the Danish one wouldn't mean much to most of you:
      Quantrill's War - The Life and Times of William Clarke Quantrill (Duane Schultz)

        My lovely Liberal has excellent taste in reading subjects

        I'm currently re-reading several books, since I have not bought or checked out from the library anything new.

        I think my next re-read will be The Arms of Krupp by William Manchester.
        He biographies are so packed with minutae that I always pick up a few nuggets of new information the next time I read it.

          I'm finishing up Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. After that I'm reading The Capitalist Manifesto by Andrew Bernstein. Then after that I'm reading Theogony by Hesoid. There is so much I want to read, yet so little time

            I've always been interested in the philosophy of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, especially his work on Stoicism.

              Eye Of The Needle - by Ken Follet

              and then this book called,

              "If I die in a combat zone, box me up and ship me home" by Tim O' Brien. I think I got the name of the book right.

                      Imperial Grunts by Robert Kaplan.
                      Although Kaplan is too much an empiro-phile for my tastes, it's a good fast read.

                      The Persian Expedition by Xenophon.
                      A fun little military adventure story on the Euphrates river, even if it is 2400 years old.

                              Leibstandarte, have you read Otto Carius' Tigers In The Mud?
                              Bought it off Amazon about a year ago. Really good read.
