Just finished "The Last Stand of Fox Company: A True Story of U.S. Marines in Combat" by Robert Drury and Tom Clavin. It was an interesting and entertaining read. The book is about Fox Company of the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines which took the brunt of the attack by the Chinese at the Chosin Reservoir. 

 

Up next is "Just Cause: The Real Story of America's High-Tech Invasion of Panama" by Malcolm McConnell. 

“The Last Stand of Fox Company” is a great read!  If you want a complimentary account of Marines at the Chosin Reservoir I would recommend “Colder than Hell” by Joseph Owen, who was featured in the Fox Co book.

Cuba's Fight for Freedom and the War with Spain in 1898

 

This history book is actually two books in one volume circa 1898. A comprehensive, accurate and thrilling history of the Spanish Kingdom and its latest and fairest Colony; the long Struggle of Cuba for Freedom and Independence; the Intervention of the United States and the Fierce War with Spain that followed. A record of oppression and patriotism, of cruelty and of valor, and above all of the triumph of the Stars and Stripes.

Just finished the Saga of Pappy Gunn by General George C. Kenney. It’s a short read but but a wealth of information on a bonafide larger-than-life aviation legend.

Just finished two: 'One Second After"  and "One Year After" by William R. Forstchen. Next up the The Final Day the last  book in the series but first {waiting on my copy of that to arrive] , Man In The High Castle by Philip K Dick.  Needed a break from all the history I usually read. If you haven't read One Second After, you might want to consider it.
