‘ghost’ & I read a bunch of the same. At gun range last Saturday, I was promised ‘Matterhorn’ by a fellow shooter. Non-fiction about firebase close to Quang Tri in Vietnam.( he said it was too graphic for him). Should be interesting.

A historian/author Noah Andre Trudeau wrote a series of books about the Civil War. Excellent work from Gettysburg to the end.
Steven Sears book Landscape turned Red is excellent also.
Just ordered Ian Toll's "twilight of the gods" can't wait to get it

I've got a few irons in the fire right now.
I honestly haven't read this much in decades.
Probably from having to read (and write) a LOT of technical articles in my last job.


"I'm The Man"- autobiography of Scott Ian from Anthrax

"A New Spring"- prequel to fantasy series "Wheel Of Time"

"EMD at 100"- brief history of gm's electro-motive division and sale to Caterpillar

How to survive a plague
The inside story of how citizens and science tamed AIDS.
Having lived during then and remembering not paying much attention to it until it started infecting the heterosexual community. Most died horrible, painful, degrading deaths. Second time reading it, just finished;
Hero, the true story of T.E Lawrence for a second time also. I average 4-5 books a month.
