Hello,

currently I´m reading the new "Visier Special 58: Marineinfanterie".

http://www.visier.de/1721.html

About the naval infantry worldwide: History, equipment, tactics, weapons and a lot of photos. Very useful especially for our hobby!

I think that the "Visier Specials" are the best on the german market (and be sure: I know a lot of german publications.).

If you are living in Germany you should take a view inside at your next shopping.

Best regards

Frank

Ps.: I think that a lot of people believe that the castle in Disneyland is the original instead of "the famos copy" Schloss Neuschwanstein. :drool: :angry3:

Larry Alexander's Biggest Brother: The Life of Major Dick Winters Who Led the Band of Brothers (http://books.google.com/books?id=J9KDEk ... &q&f=false).

Great book so far, I'm about 1/3 of the way in. BTW, for those of you who didn't know, Dick Winters died on Jan. 2 at the age of 92. :cry: (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postmo ... ro-co.html and http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelookou ... thers-dies).

Right now I am in the middle of Charles Spencer's 'Blenheim battle for Europe. I got it as a Christmas gift wasn't sure how he would be as a writer but it is rather good and interesting so I would recommend it, I am also sad to hear that Dick Winters passed away a true hero if there ever was one.
