Great piece of American and British history

Excellent read! This book led me to Rick Atkinson's The British Are Coming: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777 (The Revolution Trilogy)

Atkinson also a great summary of the WWII European theater with his 3 part liberation trilogy.

Army at Dawn, War in North Africa

The Judgment of the Nephilim by Ryan Pitterson.
It's quite thought provoking, but I'm a nerd for scripture analyses.

This is my wheelhouse as well. Great read. Spearman and Marzuli are knowledgeable on this subject as well I have several of LA Marzuli’s books on the Nephilim as well.

I’ve been interested in this as well since reading the book of Enoch (the watchers, et al)
I also read Peter Lavenda and Tom Delonge two books on this topic, Gods, man and war for another perspective

Just finished South: The ENDURANCE Expedition by Ernest Shackleton. An amazing feat of "endurance" and what a test of will.

I picked up Washington’ Spies: the Story of America’s First Spy Ring by Alexander Rose at my local tourist gift shop. It was an impulsive buy (aka #supportyourlocalsmallbusiness) but to my pleasant surprise it turned out to be a fascinating read about Culper spy ring.

AMC had a series a few years ago about this very topic and it was pretty good.

U-Boats off the Outer Banks: Shadows in the Moonlight by Jim Bunch

Just finished "The Last Gunfight" by Jeff Guinn. It was a pretty good read and offers more than the usual about the Earp brothers. It gets more into his historical motives for a lot of his adult life. Solid read.

Now I'm onto "Going Down Together" by Guinn. It's about the background and crime spree of Bonnie and Clyde.

Rockville 15 May 2020 21:12

good books listed. I ordered a few from https://www.wonderbk.com/ (Wonderbooks) and https://www.bookfinder.com/
some of the books are free in pdf at https://www.pdfdrive.com/but too big to read

I finished Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain and enjoyed it tremendously. It took me a while to read it... I had to look up a lot of words related to ships!

One short passage that stood out to me was when Twain mentioned how he had to end his pilot career due to the commerce on the river being suspended. That was when he went to Nevada to work in the silver mines. He spoke of this change in such simple, drama-free way: his plan to earn a living did not pan out so he followed another opportunity. I admire that.

Of course, now I want to go on a boat ride down the Mississippi... maybe one day!
