Just finished Werner Volkner's Many Rivers I Crossed, which wasn't all I had expected and suffered from his bad phrasing of sentences, but was alright nonetheless as a soldiers journey through the war. Just started Erich Kerns Dance of Death.

TPMM! That's such a great book! Guido Knopp is awesome. Did anyone read his book "Wehrmacht-Eine Bilanz?"

I'm reading Grenadiers by Kurt Meyer and to balance off the SS heroism, I'm also reading The Gathering Storm out of the The Second World War series of books by Winston S. Churchill.

Thanks,
Chris

"Scars of Honor" - save your money, look for it at a second hand book store. Strictly my opinion.

Moro!
I´m just reading John Lucas´s book "Eastfront ". It is interesting book, considering the fact that an Anglo-Saxon writer has a German perspective. His idea is to represent new weapons and tactics during the first two yers of "Barbarossa". My book is a translation in Finnish and it seems to be well done (let alone some aweful translations there are). :[]

"Chechen Jihad" by Yossef Bodansky. It’s quite and interesting read, especially when you come to the part where they are involved in A-stan. Including Pakistan's involvement up to and including having several thousand troops fighting there against the US and the Northern Alliance.

Guido Knopp is ok for beginners but... most of his books are ghostwritten by a team of researchers with Knopp and they all follow a very similar style (as do his television documentaries). What I do find useful about his books are the many eyewitness reports which you will not find elsewhere. :[]

I'm reading a new book published by Cambridge University Press - titled: "Hitler's War Poets" by Jay W. Baird. I've only just received it and at first glance it seems objective and well researched. Two chapters I've quicky read are bios on two interesting Waffen-SS officers -ie: Kurt Eggers and Eberhard Wolfgang Möller

Regards, Peter
