Tom, I have both of those books on my Kindle, but have not read them yet.
Killing Patton is a big book, so I'll need to be in the right frame of mind before I tackle that one, I also have War and Peace, another monster book. grin

I just finished re-reading The Black Banners by Ali Soufan. He was a FBI agent from the mid 90's on and very involved with terrorism investigations and Bin Laden. You get to see some great work and less than great as well.

Anyone read this one?

American Sniper
The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

I'm thinking of buying it from Amazon.

Thanks Josh.

I bought it this morning and will read it next. I'm currently reading a book about a family traveling around Australia in 1956 when a lot of the major roads were still two wheel tracks in the bush.

Towing a van with an 1956 Ford Customline.

A good book where they supplemented their food cost by fishing and shooting Rabbits.
Also gathering fresh mushrooms and fruits along the side of the road when available.

Last week I finished reading "90 Minutes at Entebbe", about the Israeli rescue of hostages in 76'. Those folks REALLY have their act together! wink

I'm already 60% through American Sniper and enjoying it so much I've bought one he recommends in his book.

Lone Survivor:
The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10

Have you read that one as well, Josh.
