That comment about ordering a copy of Cromwell's War Machine and having recently finished reading ARVN (depressing conclusion: the ARVN and hence South Vietnam was doomed from the start by a combination of the US forcing the RVN government to build an army of the wrong sort and larger than the country could sustain and by the RVN government's failure to actually stand for anything beyond "anti-communism"), it dawned on me just how big my unread book pile is getting. Also been meaning to experiment with the poll functionality for a bit, so, anyone care to cast a vote (the list is only a subset of my unread books pile!)? :-)
What book should I read next?
Who Moved My Blackberry? by Martin Lukes and Lucy Kellaway - corporate satire
Rifles, by Mark Urban - history of the 95th Rifles
Stargate Atlantis: Halcyon, James Swallow - yes, Halcyon is indeed by jmswallow
! He kindly gave me a copy and has said I get a cameo in it!
Watching The English, by Kate Fox - examination of the rules of English behaviour
Jungle Beat, by Roy Follows - experiences of a Brit in the Malayan Police during the Emergency
Empire Made Me, by Robert Bickers - bio of a British constable in the Shanghai Municipal Police in the 1920s
