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?

I agree with your assessment as I thought Persian Fire was also a great read.
I do like reading 2 or possibly 3 books at once, but Jon Compton's reading list is a cautionary tale. I've let things get away from me a little, but I think 5 books unfinished at a time is my practical limit :) I must say though, Weird Tales Anthology and Nicholson: Conflict Analysis sound like a natural paring, Maybe Amazon should sell them as a set.
My favorite thing about the Nicholson book is that it's dedicated to his first wife.
I can't read more than two books at a time, usually one text book and another elective/fun title, plus magazines.
Julius Caesar by J.F. C. Fullzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Next is Caesar's Civil War and The Armies of Rommel - It's Jim fault the Rommel phase.
I'm glad to help. I got The Armies of Rommel a few years back too as a birthday gift, and it's a cool reference.
It all because of your Antelope game...Gazells in the Desert...
*The Rise and Decline of Great Powers* by Paul Kennedy.
I just started Moscow to Stalingrad: Decision in the East by Earl Ziemke and Magna Bauer, from the US Army's Center for Military History.
WEll...sort of! LOL
Between teaching all those undergraduates, grading their exams, and listening to Secret Treaties, Agents of Fortune and Heaven Forbid for the thousandth time, I just got the opportunity to concentrate on it. It's a very good volume, and it's interesting to compare their analysis of the Soviet planning with that of Glantz and Fugate/Dvoretsky.
