Shelby Foot's three volume history of The Civil War.

I am listening to it via Audible . . .each volume is 48 hours or so.

For the first time, i understand the significance of the major battles and were thay fall on the overall timeline.

If you are in quarantine or self-isolating i strongly recommend it.
I read the trilogy when Ken Burns' "Civil War" documentary was first on PBS. It really took a while to get through it, but Mr. Foote wrote the history of the 1861-1865 War. And he did it in long hand. Quite a feat.

I've noticed, that since his death, the naysayers have emerged, attempting to soil his name.

I have just finished Shadow Warriors by Tom Clancy and General Carl Stiner.
Real good inside view of some of the U.S. operations of preparation before and during action around the world. The fight inside the Services to accept that Specialists are prepared to meet a threat on any contingency, at any time, ready to go, anywhere.

Now Starting a Dale Brown novel, which really is not my kind of read as I like more factual material. But since it is to have real intel on the flight operations of Warbirds I thought I would give it a try. Although dated material, you just can't give out the latest procedures, the novel Battle Born about "The Bone", the B1B Lancer has so far kept me inside the cover.

Have read all of C.J. Box that the local library has available and finally found one I didn't like - "The Highway". Bad guy kills hero, good girls get dragged down into the dirt, bad guys get away in the end. Guess he couldn't figure out how to save the hero and killed him off. Raised on westerns where good guy always wins and can't change.

If you are looking for a good historical, accurate, WW2 read, try Rick Atkinson's "The Day of Battle" about the war in Sicily and Italy.

Don't read many books anymore opting for low drag sites authored by Patriot Thoroubreds, but my wife picked up two recently for us and our boys. Right now almost through "BLITZ, Trump Will Smash the Left and Win" (all of you please pray he's right) by David Horowitz who is an exceedingly rare in Ashkenazim - a real red pilled Jew. It quickly and with good reason made the JYT's best seller list (imagine their disappointment). Those who intensely monitor the toxic cult marx will find themselves familiar with much of what Horowitz writes, but there is info even I had been unaware of. This book and Levin's are MUST READS for the normies and 'MurikinMorons . Everything Horowitz writes is most fully footnoted and documented and easy to research and verify in additional depth. Reading this right behind Mark Levin's also best selling "UNFREEDOM OF THE PRESS" and in this one found much info the marxists work hard to keep secret finding much here I'd been ignorant of. Especially related to the real and blatant leftist's racism. Lots of suppressed facts documented about FDRoosevelt and Woodrow Wilson too including the how the jew owned Times suppressed what was happening in Nazi concentraation camps both before and during WWII. Wild stuff man. Levin as usual blows it all up - as does Horowitz book and topics also thoroughly, read irrefutably, documented. Both books are compelling reads. Promise.

''Why Meadow Died' by Andrew Pollack. It details all the mistakes that led to the Broward County shooting, and all the attempted cover ups that followed.

Grant by Ron Chernow
Likewise.

I'm more than impressed so far. I'm up to the onset of the siege of Vicksburg. It's become a page turner.

More than ever I'm of the impression that General Grant was one of our greatest military leaders, ever.

While it appeared to be a "purgatory" of sorts, his stint as a quartermaster, added the final touch to his broad, yet in depth understanding of what it takes to win in war.
