    What are you currently reading?

    I just finished book 1 of the Mallorean.

    Oh, and for books: The War of the World by Niall Ferguson, and The Fellowship of the Ring with my 8-yr-old son.

    Those Terrible Middle Ages! by Regine Pernoud. It is an interesting book (really a collection of essays by this noted Middle Ages scholar) debunking many of the myths about the Middle Ages being a step backward in human progress.

    I have read all of the Prey series. Best part is that the detective is a war gamer at heart.

    Patton's Pawns by Tony Le Tessier
    Who Rules Iran by Wilfred Buchta
    The Warriors of Islam: Iran's Revolutionary Guard by Kenneth Katzman

    I just finished two others:
    Guests of the Ayatollah by Mark Bowden
    We Were One by Patrick K. O'Donnel

    I doubt many have heard of We Were One. I got my copy from the author who happens to live near by me and is a very decent guy. I found it well worth the read. The author embedded himself with some Marines and goes along with them to capture their story during the battle for Fallujah. He survives ambushes and multiple near misses to get their story. The book does not mention politics or attempt to reach an answer on the reasons for Iraq. All it does is tell the story of some brave men who were there for one another. He put his life savings into publishing the book. Very well done in my opinion. -- jim
