Currently reading as I have time Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy, 1945-1975 by Max Hastings. I've always loved his work, although sometimes wordy. This one is no different.

War Diaries, 1939–1945 by Astrid Lindgren (think Pippi Longstocking).

I have been on this odd streak of reading memoirs of various writers and artists who lived through WWI or WWII. I always wonder, whether they sensed the tragedy approaching and at what point the inevitable became obvious to them.

Had ankle surgery to repair a torn tendon and heel issue about 8 weeks ago, so I've had plenty of time to kill. I've mowed thru the local online library offerings and recently finished Days of Rage, eye opening book to say the least, and The CSAT Way by Paul Howe. Great overview of what instructors should be.

I just started the Longmire series by Craig Johnson, never watched more than a couple of episodes on TV so I can't compare the series to the book. You have to appreciate an author who lives in Ucross, Wy a town of 25 in a county of 30,000.

The Third World War by Gen Sir John Hackett. Found it on the "garage sale" table at work. I read it back in the day, but interesting to read it now and see how everyone thought things would happen back in the 1980s.
