I haven't spent much time gaming lately, except for chess. I did spend some time last week and finished putting the stickers on the blocks for C & C: Ancients.

I've spent a lot of time recently reading McPherson's history of the Civil War Battle Cry of Freedom. I have just finished the section on Antietam. It has been a good read so far.

After I don't know how long I have finally caught up on reading the posts in the Military History Books & Periodicals forum. That was a lot of reading. I came up with a lot of interesting books to read. Doug Dery must have the most amazing personal library of anyone on earth. Because of all the recommendations in the forum I picked up Kershaw's It Never Snows In September, which gives the German point of view for Market-Garden.

If you like books on military history and have money, Doug's blog and the MH books forum are dangerous places to visit. :) There is a reason people say "Damn that Doug Dery man!"

Thanks for the reminder about Doug Dery's blog -- I hear it is incredible in terms of his knowledge on military history and publshed works. Here is a direct link to his blog on the CSW Forum.
