    I'm reading "Lone Survivor" by Marcus Luttrell and have "Easy Company Soldier" by Sgt. Don Malarkey and Bob Welch, and "American Lion" (Andrew Jackson in the White House) by Bob Meacham lined up next.

    I've had to cut my political reading loose for a while, it was driving me crazy!

    His name rings a bell for me. I may have read something of his some years ago. Or, maybe I just meant to read something of his some years ago.

    Just read "The Moon Is Down", by John Steinbeck. It was originally a propaganda novel about American resistance in a Nazi occupied U.S., written for the Office of Information Services (one of wild Bill Donovan's agencies), but wild Bill thought the idea of Nazi occupation would hurt morale. Steinbeck re-wrote it set in an unnamed european country, and released it as an independent short novel.
    Now I'm trying to read a book about re-examination of Soviet Union, but it's a little dense for something I don't HAVE to read :eek:.

    'Four Fires' by Bryce Courtenay.. Although I've got to finish it shortly, because Uni holidays end today and I won't have any time for books other than Gray's Anatomy and Business Studies text books!

    Nothing other than the forums at the moment. I do enjoy Science Fiction though.

    for great reading try MATTERHORN, by Karl Marlantes, the Vietnam war from a 2nd Lt USMS point of view. Marlantes was awarded the Navy Cross, Bronze star and a couple of purple hearts. the book is good reading and hard to put down.

    Just finished “Blood and Thunder” by Hampton Sides. It was about Kit Carson and the conquest of the American west.
    I am fascinated about the subject, and thought it was a great read. I was even working in N.M. while reading and took a side trip to Taos, just to see Kit Carsons home.

    I just finished "Lone Survivor". If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. Those guys went through Hell and were incredibly courageous. May they rest in peace.

    I read it a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. It gives you an amazing respect for SEALS.

    I have been working nights this past week and have finished three books. Two Clive Cussler books and a book called Patriots that is a pretty cool survival tale that takes place after an economic collapse in the U.S.

    Patriots is a good read and not so far fetched as it once may have been.
