Is my favorite American author.
While I first starting reading him in High School, I recently reread all his
books and find them as enjoyable as ever. Nobody captures humanity the way
John Adams by David McCullough
A very insightful book which brings
to life the elements which led to the founding of the US.
America's Miracle Man In Vietnam: Ngo Dinh Diem, Religion, Race, And U.S.
Intervention In Southeast Asia 1950-1957 by Seth Jacobs
Reading this book is fascinating and
frustrating at the same time. Fascinating because it explains how we got
into the Vietnam war and frustrating because we seem to be making many of
the same mistakes again.
by Bill Clinton
Clinton's public service is a matter
of public record so it's easy to fact check. The events which unfolded
during his administration, the strategies, and the politics involved are
flabbergasting to say the least.
Return to Base: Memoirs of a B-17 Copilot Kimbolton, England, 1943-1944 by Jesse
My father wrote this book before he
passed away fall 2003. Since he had been a professor of Sociology most of
his life, it's not surprising that this book examines the thoughts and
fears of the young airmen fighting WWII rather than how much and what they
bombed. Precisely what stands this book apart from many WWII
memoirs and makes it a good read.
