    Just been re-reading the classic...........

    IRON COFFINS
    A U-BOAT COMMANDER'S WAR 1939-1945
    By Herbert A. Werner

    If you only read one book on the U-Boats read this one, you will not be disappointed. A great read from start to finish.


    Coming to the end of another book may be able to post my comments on that one later today.

    Just finished "Death of the Wehrmacht by Citino" very well done. Also War Plan Orange. Both books go a long way in explaining the reasons why strategies went a certain way, when as armchair generals we shake our heads!

    Interesting paperback about the Panzers and the Author draws the same opinion what we all know what went wrong.

    Just started Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally the other day. I recently finished Death Dealer: The Memoirs of the SS Commandant of Auschwitz by Rudolph Höss and still reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by Shirer (taking forever to get through that one!)

    I have tons on my shelf just waiting to be read - some might not be worth a darn, but when I'm at used book stores, if it is related to WWII, I grab it! You can see my library by going here: LibraryThing | Catalog your books online I still need to add some more WWII books to the list and haven't barely touched my fiction section. (Dad gives me all his WWII novels).
    I have other books listed other than WWII, but tags are in alphabetical order - look for History, WWII, Third Reich and Holocaust. A lifetime membership on this site is only $25 - great way to keep track of your personal library.

    I'm reading Tigers in the Mud by Otto Carius. He doesn't seem to think that the Americans were as tough as the Russians having fought on both fronts.

    The Jedburgh's. Pretty good so far! A very interesting group of soldiers that help the resistance fighters.
