I was at Borders a few nights ago and I picked up 'Warhammer 40,000: The Killing Ground', 'The Art of Clint Langley: Dark Visions from the grim Worlds of Warhammer', 'The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road: 1567-1659' by Geoffrey Parker, 'Forgotten Wars: The End of Britain's Asian Empire' by Christopher Bayly and Tim Harper and 'The grand Strategy of Philip II' by Geoffrey Parker.

I finished 'The Lover' by Marguerite Duras a few days back. I have just started on 'Battles of the Thirty Years War: From White Mountain to Nordlingen 1618-1635'. I am also in the midst of a few other books including 'God is not great: How religion poisons the world' by Christopher Hitchens.

What you are guys reading?

Finally got around to reading Balkoski's Omaha Beach. A very good read with great maps. I spurred me to buy the D-Day at Omaha Beach game by Decision. The book also has me looking forward to Battles for Normandy by GMT which should be here in a couple of weeks. The only thing I thought was at fault in the book was the lack of the German POV but you can't have everything.
About half way thru ' The Left Hand of Darkness' by Ursula Le Guin...seems quite different to her other stuff. Finished her latest 'Lavinia' just recently and that was far more typical of her style and theme ..also the 'Consolation of Philosophy' by Alain de Botton...a quick snapshot of 6 famous philosophers...
The Thirty Years War - Europe's Tragedy by Peter W. Wilson. 850+ pages. Wonderful book.
Reading Harold Coyle's "Team Yankee".
This novel brings back quite a few memories. I recall that there was also a wargame based on this.
I didn't play the game, but Team Yankee was one of the better books I ever bought in a grocery store.
What a coincidence, I'm also rereading Panzer Leader while I'm waiting for Glantzs newest book to arrive (its been shipped) part 2 of the Stalingrad trilogy..
Armageddon in Stalingrad, David Glantz arrived in the mail today!
Reading Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini.
Tony, The Clay Pigeons of St. Lo is one of my all time favorite reads about this time period. I have often thought it would be a great read for the new officer just to get an understanding about combat leadership. I used to work for Borders and would reccomend this title all the time. I am happy to hear you liked it. Wayne.
Holger H. Herwig's latest, THE MARNE, 1914. We finally get the German view in English. Stunning. Henstch gets a bit of a reprieve (although not much of one) and von Bulow doesn't come off looking too good. There's a number of cherished historical myths that Herwig takes on pretty well...and you'll find them quite, quite interesting. An absolute must for the WW I gamers.
I just ordered The Marne 1914 a couple days ago.
