First post of August! And it's late! Well, everything slows down in the summer, right?
Anyway, two books from yesterday:
Bruce Cummings - The Korean War
I teach this period of US history, so expanding my personal knowledge base about the conflict is always a good idea.
And, because grabbing the Cummings suggested to me that I hadn't read much military history recently,
John Keegan, The First World War
This is supposed to be the definitive text on the war, and I've never read it, so I thought I'd take a crack at it.
