Manray9 I removed "Memoirs of an Infantry Officer," because it is included in "The Complete Memoirs of George Sherston" which was already listed.

Manray9 This started as my "Top Ten." Others have added to it.

I was wondering about that, when I first noticed this list... After some deliberation, as the description is a bit ambigious of course, I have added books as well but all in all voted for no more than 10 titles (one title I voted for was already on the list and I added nine others), which make my votes my personal 'top ten list'.

Should you not have wanted people to add titles, it might have been a good idea to say so in the description, because now, as I said, it is a bit ambigious...

I don't care. I simply noted that it started as my Top Ten. Add as you see fit. I see someone added "The Good Soldier," which I recall has nothing to do with WW I.
