    Hi all,

    There are at least two recent books on my mind in this category - I'm wondering who has read these? What are your opinions of them? Are there others?

    Brothers in Arms by James Holland (Sherwood Rangers)
    Burning Steel by Peter Hart (2F&FY)

    Just finished "Burning Steel". Loved it. In particular, I think, because of the large number of first hand accounts in it.

    I expect them to be quite different books, and personally don't care much for Holland.

    Peter Hart used to be the oral historian at the IWM, so he did a lot of the interviews with vets. His work is first-class for what it is (oral history of the regiment), but it's not a tidy or scholarly study of the regimental war, if that's what you are looking for.

    I highly recommend also his podcast. it's great fun.

    All the best
