I'm a huge history buff, especially military history. I'll read books on almost any historic era or war. So I was wondering if there is anyone else out there who loves history as much as I do and if so, what are your favorite books on the topic? It can be from any period throughout history. I'll list a few of my favorites,
1. Ordeal by Fire- The Civil War and Reconstruction (James McPherson)
2. The Confederate nation (Emory M. Thomas)
3. Company Aytch (Sam Watkins)
4. The Second World War (Winston Churchill) I've only read 3 of the 6 so far.
5. Unbroken (Laura Hillenbrand) SUCH a good book.
Those are just a few of my favorites.
Also does anyone out there use Goodreads? For those of you who don't know, Goodreads is a social network for books. You can update your progress in the books your reading, list the books you have already read, and then the books you want to read. It is almost a game to me and keeps me reading.
