I haven’t been reading as much in recent weeks, and thus haven’t finished any books. I am working through Frank’s Guadalcanal book and have just passed the battle of Cape Esparance, a payback battle for Savo Island. I have taken up the Desert War trilogy, although at this period the author is off reporting on the failed negotiations to get India to take more of an interest in the war. The Desert Generals book has moved on from O’Connor’s offensive to the drawdown to defend Greece. This would have bad results for Africa, and Greece. I’ve started a new book “Eager for Glory”, a life of the Roman General Drusus, father of Germanicus and the Emperor Claudius. The maps are nice, and I’m just getting into the text itself. He is just entering his twenties.
