Reading Update – January

Books that are complete awaiting a write-up…

  • Drive on Moscow, 1941 – Operation Typhoon.
  • Path to Victory – Douglas Porch.  A book on the Med Front in WWII.
  • Aetius – Biography of the Roman Generalissimo that defeated Atilla in 451 AD.
  • Notable Trials IV – complete, just have Oscar Wilde to write-up.
  • Craig Kennedy, Scientific Detective by Arthur Reeve.

Currently working on…

  • The Petersburg Campaign, Volume I – Ed Bearss.
  • Brute Force – another WWII analysis book.  Supposedly hard on the Allies, but so far is trashing the German’s war effort too.
  • The Wars against Napoleon – no progress – about two-thirds done.
  • Cats are Not Peas – A quick intro to Cat Genetics. – a little progress, maybe a quarter way in.
  • The War of the Ring – more of the “History of Middle Earth”.  These on the actual Lord of the Rings are a bit more interesting than the others.
  • Vanished Kingdoms – still working. Have a few chapters to write-up.
  • Islands of Destiny – John Prados on the Guadalcanal and later South Pacific campaigns.
  • Complete Works of H. P. Lovecraft – on Kindle

Also found some new Historical Podcasts…

  • The History of England – David Crowther from 400-1300 AD (so far)
  • The History of Byzantium – Robin Pierson ‘contnuing’ the History of Rome podcast from 476 to hopefully 1453 AD.
