Lonely Vigil by Walter Lord is on sale for $1.99  This is a very easy to read and interesting book about the Coastwatchers in the South Pacific in WW2.  Some of the stories are almost unbelievable.

An anthology of five American Civil War books. The collection includes:

Volume 1: “…To Knock Jos. Johnston”: Sherman, Atlanta, and the Sinews of War
Before Sherman began his famous “March to the Sea,” he had to first take Atlanta and defeat the wounded, but still formidable, Confederate Army of Tennessee. Volume 1 tells you how he did it.

Volume 2: Grant Cuts Loose: Logistics and the Drive on Vicksburg
Ulysses S. Grant had tried a half-dozen times and failed to get at the Confederate citadel of Vicksburg. Discover how he finally managed to capture the city and an entire Confederate army in Volume 2.

Volume 3: Vicksburg Redeemed: An Assessment of Confederate Combined Operations During the Baton Rouge Campaign of 1862
General Earl Van Dorn had a plan. General John Breckinridge’s Confederate Task Force, with the aid of the C.S.S. Arkansas ironclad ram, would re-take the Federally occupied Louisiana capital of Baton Rouge. Find out what happened in Volume 3.

Volume 4: Dooming the Confederacy: The Decisive Battle of Champion Hill
So, you think Gettysburg was the decisive battle of the Civil War? Read Volume 4 and you might just change your mind.

Volume 5: Star-Crossed: A Quantitative Reassessment of the Relative Combat Performance of the Army of Tennessee Compared to the Army of Northern Virginia
Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia outclassed its sister army in the West, the Army of Tennessee, in every category, right? Read Volume 5 before you answer that question.

The Kindle version Includes extensive links to authoritative and informative websites dedicated to specific battles, personalities, locations, and events discussed in the narratives.

Thanks!  History of the Civil War is a real find.

Warning about the US Entering the Great War - If I read it right the book is > 10,000 pages.

Holy crap, 10,000 pages!?!  If you order a physical copy does it arrive in an Ark of the Covenant crate?   :crazy2:
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
