Several books were nearly done, and to start the week off I finished reading Homeland by Cory Doctorow. Terrific book and terrifying. Very topical at this time in that much of the book relates to dealing with an American police state and dealing with riot control efforts stopping protest marches. Very much worth a read.

I followed that one with Osprey Elite #45: Armies of the Gulf War, when many nations came together and beat back a bully who'd invaded a tiny country on its border, Kuwait. The book deals with the major combatants discussing their armaments and equipment. Not bad.

Then it was Lawful Interception by Cory Doctorow, a short piece follow-on to Homeland that hints at ways a crowd can deal with being faced down by disciplined, trained riot police. Interesting. Timely. Good stuff.

Next was Osprey Campaign #34: Poltava 1709: Russia Comes of Age, not a battle that we hear much about in US educational systems. I found it quite interesting, though the verbiage was a little hard to slog through.

Then, Osprey Elite #51: US Army Air Force (2) which deals primarily with the equipment and uniforms of the ground crews and support staff in all regions and weathers that the USAAF fought in during WWII. I wonder (because I've yet to come across a copy) what book (1) deals with?
