08:06 am A few more books finished lately, in between various duties.
First was Osprey Men-at-Arms #127: The Israeli Army in the Middle East Wars 1948 – 73. The information seemed familiar somehow. The photos included weren't particularly terrific, I'm afraid, and the plates not impressive.
Next was Osprey Campaign #Teutoburg Forest AD 9: The Destruction of Varus and his Legions which discusses a major disaster in Roman history. This may have turned the tide of Roman expansion into Central Europe once and for all. Interesting read.
Finally, Osprey Campaign #248: Coronel and Falklands 1914: Duel in the South Atlantic; this is a topic upon which I had no previous knowledge. It deals with British and German naval forces battling in the waters off of South America in the early stages of WWI. Quite interesting.
