    Hey Guys

    It has been a while since I've posted, so busy with work. Even my reading has diminished. I am still reading a book a month on average. At the moment I am reading Vimy by Pierre Berton, a Canadian Author who passed away few years ago. It is all about the Canadian Corps and their battle at Vimy Ridge. Just finished first chapter and really enjoying same.

    I should check that out. I mentioned Panzer Commander on another thread which was the story of Hans-Ulrich von Luck und Witten adjutant to Rommel 7thPzDiv. And Commander of the 21stPzDivKG. Right now I am rereading Kommando by James Lucas. and I'm going to reread the Life and Times of Reinhard Heydrich by G.S.Graber which I got about 1/3 the way through and got busy so I put it down. Since your heading South to Malta or Italy check out Neither Hope nor Fear by Frido von Senger und Etterlin. He was the commander of the XIV Panzer Korps in Italy.

    Thanks mate, I'll certainly check that one out. I've got so many books to read at the moment, it's hard to find the time. Hopefully I'll get some read in Malta.:)

    Third Reich in Power 1933-39 by Richard Evans.

    I have to get that. I've read his first book, and it's fascinating. Evans really has mastered this terrain.

    I believe Bullock died a couple of years ago. Superb book though, I'd reccomend it to anyone.

    After you read it, don't watch the film!!! If you have seen the film, don't read the book!

    Personally think it is even better than the first one, it does emphasis the myth of Nazi economic recovery, food was already rationed prior to the war starting and if they had continued their education policy the German people would have been super fit but lacking intelligence. You get the sense that the regime would not have lasted much beyond Hitler in that current state.
