Return to Oz was seriously disturbing.
Oh my God… I forgot about that one. Yeah, I have some vague memories of seeing that at my aunt’s house late one night… made absolutely no sense to me. I just recall monkeys on unicycles.
The man is a genius- Sharpe’s series, Starbuck, Archer’s tale etc.
Jefe- if you are going to read AnnCoulter’s recent book then I
Highly reccomend Sam Tannenhaus’ biography Whittaker Chambers.
I read TR Frehenbach’s This Kind of War (it’s about the Korean War)
every June for the last 4 years.
I also reccomend, Stanley Karnow’s, Vietnam.
Recently, I’m reading Ernest R. May’s, Strange Victory. It’s about how the French lost against The Germans in 1940.
-Joseph Ellis’, Founding Brothers.
-John Earl Haynes & Harvey Klehr’s Venona:
Decoding Soviet Espionage in America.
And Reading the Lord of the Rings Books with my oldest.
Kitchener appeared unnamed in that iconic “Britons – [his picture] Wants You” WWI recruitment poster, with the result that more people today may be familiar with his face than with his name.
Another behind-the-times general was Vladimir Sukhomlinov, who served as Russia’s Minister of War until 1915. I’ve heard that, while he held that post, he believed that he had learned everything there was to know about war in a cavalry charge he had led against the Turks during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, and that he was allegedly proud of the fact that he had not read a military textbook in 25 years.
Interesting. That’s in order on the list under the map, I presume?
I’d have expected New York to be in the top 5. Illinois I figured would have been much lower.
Yea I also thought New York would be at a much higher position too. I wasn’t surprised to see my home state California to be at the top. Stuff there is pretty expensive.
