Here is a partial list of the books that I have read that deal with various historical periods and events. I list these so that I might continue to come in contact with those that nurture the same interests as myself. My reading has also spurred me to be much more inquisitive as to the truths of some of these historical accounts. In some instances, the statement 'Truth is the first casuality' is very relevent when various readings are compared to one another. Regardless, my historical hobby is one of inspiration and pride in the military men of all nations, friend and foe alike.
