Here is a quick synopsis of what I have been reading and my 2 cents!
This is an interesting read on the desert war from the perspective of a journalist written right after the campaign. The book has a very English perspective on the war.
I never wanted to read a book on generals. I always preferred reading about the battles or the soldiers that fought them. However, my perspective has just changed. I picked this book up on the recommendation from a friend at work and it is an amazing piece of work. I recommend this to all who have an interest in US campaigns in Africa, Italy, and Europe during WW2.
Retribution: the Battle for Japan 1944-1945 by Max Hasting
Information: Overall a good analysis of the Pacific War. The narration is quite good and I would recommend as a good overview of the last few years of the PTO.
The Liberation Trilogy… I have read it and now listened to it through audible. Recommend either media. Always good!
I cannot say enough about this book. I have listened to it twice. I have not read it, but I want to. It has a great deal of detail from both the US and Japanese perspective. The Japanese perspective takes the prominent role in this book and it is quite enlightening..
So many details. I think I would rather read than listen to this book as these are the details I want in order to develop scenarios for war gaming. Narration is average.
I read this as a teenager in the 80s. A good book on the hypothetical WW3 confrontation between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, but with an emphasis on the Navy battles around Iceland.
I am also listening to a number of the Great Courses Audible books:
A great amount of detail presented in a University lecture format.
