Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

A few minutes here and a few minutes there and then a book or two gets read:

First was Osprey Command #20: Orde Wingate, a short book that gives a fast overview of an eccentric British general famed for his work in WWII.

Then, Osprey Elite #191: Italian Navy & Air Force Elite Units & Special Forces 1940 – 45; hard to believe that there's much to say about the armed forces of Italy in WWII, but they managed to perform in various roles quite well, especially when it came to the more elite navy and air force. I learned a thing or two from this book.
