Odie,

Despite being young I remain a bit of a troglodyte, besides e-books are free mostly or at very nominal charges, online I read from Gutengberg project sometime, its an excellent preservation project for classics.

Dinesh D'Souza as Elizabeth recommends is a great author but he is firmly in GOP camp, he is evangelical, hence one must keep an open mind while reading him, but then again, that is good advise for reading any book I suppose.

I am interested in reading this book about the evolution of American Gen. staff since WW2, forgot the name, also need to follow up on Killer Angels, you must read that one if you haven't, ACW scenario fiction at its finest with credible military details, rare.

The book I linked above is about the Welsh Guards' tour of deployment, as you can see it comes with 5/5 rating on Amazon, it ll give you a good idea of the crap Brits are putting up with and how they are overcoming these obstacles.

Iv heard about Rogue Warriors series manytimes, never got around to it.

My semester ends in Dec., hopefully it all works out.
