Paul Pellicci Hi Martin, I am trying to learn this system. You know, ol dogs, etc.
I find that not too many people are interested in what we are interested in. History is so facinating. When I was your age, I read poetry, art, and sci-fi.

Now I am interested in a subject I could't pass in school!

Hello Paul, yes i know history is unentertaining to some. I don't really find anybody my age to disccss history with. That why I created the group, in the hope that history lovers join. I wanted to have a relaxed atmosphere but with some basic structure for the group. My ambition is to have a great library filled with military and history books. I am slowly working my way to that goal.

Paul Pellicci with as many books as you devour, where do you get them? Personally I prefer hard cover books so I can save them for my grand children if they catch the bug.

I spend too much time at Barnes and Noble. I almost live in the military section. Picking out a book is hard for me. I like one book then I see another interesting title and so on. I also shop on Amazon.com . I prefer hardcover also becase they last longer and look professional in a library.

Paul Pellicci me too, I love Barnes and Noble. I don't buy there any more. I go to amazon and purchase used hard cover when I can. I also use there feature of sampling the book. In fact I checked out the book you recommended about Hitler and his mistakes. I have to go back to it tonight and read as much as possible for free.

I love buying used books from amazon. I kill time by browsing through the book online. The book on Hitler I bought in Barnes and Noble but they only had paperback available. Have you read Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler? I wanted to read it to get an idea of Hitler's mind-set.

When I'm off island (I live on an island) I enjoy exploring used book stores. I like to order new books from our local bookstores on the island (keep it local) and I find a lot of out of print and used books from Abebooks.com

Silvana (silvaubrey) a topic/thread on the best military historians, perhaps?


message 15: by Martin Lamb, Head Moderator (new)

Martin Lamb | 212 comments Mod
Ok, I'll start a thread. Would you post your recommendations?


message 16: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) Will do.

I'd also like a thread on the battles during The Pacific War campaign, both land and sea. There are some great ones like Midway, Peleliu, the Solomon Island, Leyte Gulf, Saipan, Iwo Jima, etc.
