Another Book Recommendation
Following in jpr’s footsteps, here’s another book recommendation/suggestion (“recogestion”?).Â I was going to post this on Thursday of next week, but I’m going off to do my “2 weeks” and I’m not sure how connected I’ll be.
I just fininshedÂ James Hornfischer’s “Ship of Ghosts: The Story of the USS Houston…”, and would recommend it to anyone interested in WWII naval history.Â Hornfischer (Best known for 2004′s “Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors”) is a superb writer andÂ he’s at the top of his game.Â He’s taken an almost forgottenÂ story ofÂ WWII POWsÂ and brought it to a world that is slowly forgetting whatÂ wasÂ endured to bring the world back from the brink.
Why post next Thursday, you ask?Â It’s the 65th anniversary of the sinking if the Houston.
