    He's the man that wrote Combined Fleet Decoded right?

    How does this book hold up?

    Still on the Prologue. He covers the FDR/Nimitz/God meeting there. Like it so far.

    It's amazing what those guys accomplished with little to nothing to start with, and less than no outside help. When reading about their exploits, I often think what would I do, or what could I do in a similar situation.

    The Island on Bird Street by Uri Orlev. Young adult book I am sharing with my class. An historical fiction based on his own experiences in the Warsaw ghetto.

    I'm currently reading With the Jocks by Peter White. Like a lot of my purchases, I picked this up used by chance because there was one copy at a local store. I'm only a short ways into the book, but I find it extremely vivid and well-written. I've just read the part where he and a few others encounter a Tiger tank and are isolated from the rest of the platoon.
