Very interesting account of the lives of many individuals during the immediate post WWI period as they strive to carry on after the destruction and chaos.


Cheers,

RR

Very compelling book. I enjoyed it much more than the '79 movie.


Cheers,

RR

Forgot to mention this one I just finished -

What Are You Reading? - Page 12 71AlM8ZFXgL._AC_UY218_ML3_

A very interesting look at various players in that conflict large and small with a view to reveal little known issues. Kind of revisionist in my mind and not confident that this is real, embellished, or pure fantasy but it does make for interesting reading.

I have been interested to learn more about WWI and saw this book on the shelf at my local library so thought I'd give it a spin. I'll probably check out a more historically accepted volume next and see what that says. I've been largely ignorant of the causes and effects of that conflict until recently. If I once studied it during my schoolboy days I certainly don't remember anything, but then again I was a very poor student in every subject!

Exclamation


Cheers,

RR

Very interesting account about a German raider ship during WWI who laid mines, took prisoners, and sunk many vessels in a voyage that lasted over a year while never making port and yet returned to Germany to a hero's welcome.


Cheers,

RR

Stephen King originally released this under a different name for various reasons. But it's clearly a King novel. Maybe not his best work but still interesting.


Cheers,

Actually read it a few months ago, but it's aptly appropriate to our current situation.

Arthur Herman's Freedoms Forge, about how US industry ramped up during WWII.

What Are You Reading? - Page 12 51-rNsrXA4L.SX150

My favorite anecdote is from a VP of a prominent New York bank who had volunteered for an open position in the government only to hear nothing for several months. Then his boss, who did not know the VP had actually apied for the role, was speaking with another member of the government who was complaining that he couldn't fill this very same position. The boss recommend the VP, and he got the job. After having been in the position for nearly a year he received a letter thanking him for his interest but telling him that he did not get the position. All this was funny enough, but the fact that the letter was actually signed by himself speaks volumes about American bureaucracy.
