An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943, Volume One of the Liberation Trilogy

by

Atkinson sets you up with how badly planned the American invasion of North Africa was. He also tells of the loss of life by poorly trained officers who made bad decisions. I really liked the details about the battles and the ultimate retreat of the Germans from the continent.
The Archer's Tale

by

Great read about the use of the long bow in british tactics. The French would cut the middle finger of English Archers captured in battle so that they could never pull the string again. Ergo, the middle finger salute to the French by the British archers.
Band Of Brothers

by

By following this US Army unit from training thru the capture of the Eagles Nest in Germany, he was able to show how the soldiers depended upon each other and bonded into a fighting unit. There was a feeling that you shared with these soldiers as they fought their way across France and Germany. I felt like I knew them personally and I felt their loss at the end of the war. They had changed so much and had to go back to what they had left before the war. It was difficult to think that all they had seen would have little or no value back home......
