First was Osprey Weapon #10: The Pattern 1853 Enfield Rifle. It's a detailed work on a weapon that was used in a variety of wars throughout the Victorian era. I found the book fairly interesting, in that I've read a lot about that time period, in fiction and history.
Second was Osprey Warrior #150: Carthaginian Warrior 264 – 146 BC, which was very detailed considering that the Romans knocked out their culture. I found it a worthy piece.
Then, there was Jewish Lives: Hank Greenberg: The Hero Who Didn’t Want to Be One. I read this book primarily because of the author, Mark Kurlansky, whose work I generally like, and this book was an easy read, and did a good job of describing the times of Greenberg's successes. If you're a baseball fan, this might be especially good to read.
Finally, this morning, I finished reading Osprey Campaign #103: Hampton Roads 1862: First Clash of the Ironclads, one of the battles of the Civil War that hinted at the technological advances that were going to change war into the 20th Century. Not a bad read.
Clearly, now that my classes are over online, I'm off to the races with respect to reading!
