Fetterman Massacre by Dee Brown. The Swedish translation is VERY ambitious (they've double-checked every source and some others :shock: ) and a very good read (and it was a lot cheaper too :-D ). And it became a little dio. :-D

The last book,Who Won Waterloo? The Trial Of Captain Siborne,by Barry Van Danzig. A great book,with great photo`s . The strategy of the day has been expertly examined, with the ingenious use of model soldiers placed on a large scale diorama that give the reader more insight into the battle.

The Last one was the first sharpe book. But the most interesting in recent times was Zulu Rising by Ian Knight. A very heavy tome but well worth having read.

I am know with Sharpe no 5 book. But also reading DBA 2.2 and WRG 6th ed from the History of wargaming project. Interesting read as it is not just pure rule books.

Oh no, I read too much! A book about two Swedish journalists that get jailed in Ethiopia. A good read, but I don't know if it will be published in other countries. It should be.
