Now moved on to "Forgotten Battlefronts of the First World War" by Martin Marix Evans, and in particular the chapter on the fighting in the Vosges mountains.

Book drafts. It's not fun; it's all work. Bleah.

I'm looking forward to making it to May and being able to sleep a little more often.

I've just finished Alexandria - the latest in the lighthearted series about Falco, the detective and informer in ancient Rome. This time he visits Alexandria and gets enmeshed in murder, infighting and illegal selling off of scrolls at the Great Library.

Love Greg Isles. If you like him, you might also like Jeff Long (Descent is a particular favorite), or Michael Gruber's Jimmy Pas series: Tropic of Night, Valley of Bones, and Night of the Jaguar.

What I'm reading:

FHM Francais, Mai 2009 edition arrived in the post this morning. There's a photoshoot of Lisa Edelstein. My, she's hot! 43 next month and sexy as hell. And articles on Voodoo in France, how to negotiate, escort girls in France, and an interview with Hugh Jackman. OK, it's hardly a quality read, but my excuse it it's helping me with my French!!

I just started Travels In The Greater Yellowstone by Jack Turner ( New York, 2008 ). It's essentially a series of essays on the park, its ethology, its geology, and its environs— wolves, bears, rivers, plateaus, elk, mountain goat, ranchers, Jackson Hole, dogs, energy, development, tourists, beautiful people, Wyoming, etc. The author hates humans.

I've just finished Mark Urban's Wellington's Rifles: Six Years To Waterloo with England's Legendary Sharpshooters ( New York, 2004 ). It's a thorough account of one of the British Army's most celebrated units, the 95th Regiment of Foot ( Rifles ). Its exploits through six years of the Peninsular War were legendary and, as a result, it was eventually taken out of the "line" and became known as The Rifle Brigade. It was the first unit in the British Army to adopt the American tactics observed by the British between 1775-1781— dispersed troops using cover and aimed fire with "Baker" rifles rather than the massed fire of smoothbores by in-line troops.

Geneva Conventions? Huh? The Peninsula was nasty, nasty, nasty business. Wounded or captured troops could expect no quarter; it was normal for the dead, wounded or captured to be stripped of all their clothes and possessions. Discipline in the British Army was severe and fierce; Wellington and his commanders worked assiduously to be sure that British troops feared them more than they feared the French. Floggings were frequent and de rigeur. I'm not sure what was more horrific, Nelson's Navy, Wellington's Army or service as Napoleonic cannon fodder.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

Have you read "The Recollections of Rifleman Harris"? A classic slim memoir of an ordinary rifleman in the 95th.

Right now I'm re-reading The Dark Tower series by Stephen King (for the 3rd or 4th time in the last 2 years lol...I REALLY need to get some new material to read)

I think next I'm going to start on some Tolkien. I've read The Hobbit many years ago, but never have gotten around to the Rings trilogy.

I'm reading biographies of Curtis LeMay, George Patton, Bette Davis, and Robert E. Lee. Plus a history of vampire lore.

In the French, rather than translation, guessing from your user name?

Hehe nah, the english translated version. Never came across a French copy. It'd be hard anyways since my French has suffered from not using it. Grew up speaking Portuguese mostly!

Nothing right this second, unless you count the boards. I did just finish a couple of books this afternoon though.

Infantry Aces by Franz Kurowski.

Military Small Arms of the Twentieth Century.
