    I have two on the go at the moment - in 'proper' book form I am reading Hitler's Hangman by Robert Gerwarth which is the story of Reinhard Heydrich, while on Kindle I am reading Hitler's Armada by Geoff Hewitt which states the case for the Royal Navy defeating a German invasion in 1940.

    Anything by Ambrose is worth reading. D-Day, Citizen Soldiers,and Pegasus Bridge are particularly good.
    I agree ! I love the way he writes, I couldnt put his D- Day down!

    Blood, Steel, and Myth: The II.SS-Panzer-Korps and the Road to Prochorowka by George Nipe Jr.

    I started this about 3 months ago, it's a great read but a serious slog to get through. (plus it's so heavy my arms get tired if trying to read in bed!)

    Speaking of stories from concentration camps, has anyone read Escape from Auschwitz by Andrei Pogozhev? I read it years ago and quite enjoyed it. I need to find the book again.

    'Women in War and Resistance' by Kazimiera J. Cottam.

    The book is 92 brief biographies of Soviet women recipients of the title Hero of the Soviet Union, for service during WW2.

    Books that i am currently reading...
    The history of the german army by Jacques Besnoit-Méchin is one of the best, perhaps the best, work ever written on the german army of the first half of the XXth century...

    "Jacques Michel Gabriel Paul Benoist-Méchin, born July 1, 1901 in Paris 17e, and died February 24, 1983 is aintellectual, journalist, historian, musicologist and French politician; he was sentenced to death in 1947 for collaborationist during the German occupation, before being pardoned. As a historian, he is a specialist of the German Army and the Arab world" (from Wikipedia).

    Ive read Junger's 'Im Stahlgewittern.'
    He sure liked his war...., though of course he earns points for not having liked AH nor the TR much and in fact wasnt impressed after a face to face with The Fuehrer.

    A fantastic writer. I have several of his books; D-Day, Citizen Soldiers, Crazy Horse and Custer, Undaunted Courage, Pegasus Bridge. His latter work wasnt his best (still alright though), but then his major books shines so bright, that it hardly matters.

    There are great writers......, and then there is Ambrose.

    A league of his own.

    Most excellent writer and book.
    One has to read Beevor as reference, if one is the slightest interested in the War IMO.

    I am currently reading 'BLOODLANDS: Europe between Hitler and Stalin.'

    If you read only one book the rest of the year, make it this one.

    It is a MUST READ!

    'nuff said.
