My Current Reading List (As if anyone cares)

I decided to write about what I am reading right now since I can’t think of anything else to say. Topic suggestions are always welcome.

My Reading List
Band of Brothers, E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne From Normandy to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest by Stephen E. Ambrose. (A very good book about Easy Company’s experiences in World War II. Some may be familiar with the HBO miniseries of the same name. Very good book; highly recommended).

Infantry Soldier Holding the Line at the Battle of the Bulge by George W. Neill. (A riveting account of the authors experiences as part of the 365th Infantry Regiment, 99th Infantry Division on the front line of World War II. The story unfolds with honesty and visceral images which accurately recount the horrors witnessed by the author. Mr. Neill also gives an overview of the entire battle as it unfolds, so that even the uninitiated can grasp the scope, and the horror, of those 40 terrible days. Well worth the read for those with an interest in military history. I highly recommend it).

Just thought I’d share.

    Is this historical fiction or non-fiction?

    For some reason, I cannot edit my previous comment. The links I provided are dead and I dug out the updated ones. Here is what the above comment (#3 should say):

    Both are historical non-fiction.

    Infantry Soldier was published by Red River Books, the imprint of the University of Oklahoma Press (http://www.oupress.com/index.asp); ISBN 0-8061-3380-5.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Band of Brothers is a great book and was a fabulous TV series.

    Are you familiar with T. C. Boyle’s “Water Music” and “The Road to Wellville” two very good books. He does the historical fiction thing, and does it quite well, I think.

    Hi Alan!

    No, I’m not familiar with T.C. Boyle’s works. I will look into them, though. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I would also like to suggest an author you might like: Bernard Cornwell. I’m reading one of his right now called Harlequin. (It’s not a romance =P) It’s a trilogy about the Grail Quest. His twist on it. He’s also got a short series about the Saxons. I read/own the first of his trilogy about King Arthur too. He’s got another longer series, but it hasn’t piqued my interest. I think you’d enjoy them.
