Well, I have finally finished the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant one or two months back. |
I have mostly been reading Beevor's history of the Second World War since then and I have also made good progress on "Kritik der zynischen Vernunft" (Critique of cynical reason) by Sloterdijk.
Other than that I'm trying to get back into a general russian history by Lothar Rühl.

Also likes to bathe in Fruit Punch and to get savaged by Bloodsuckers.

Another River, Another Town: A Teenage Tank Gunner Comes of Age in Combat--1945 |
This is without a doubt the best book i have read in years.
First hand accounts, very well written and never a dull moment.
This isnt just another war story, its got humor, obviosly fear, and the transition that takes place between someone that wants to get in there and fight and be a hero and then what happends after hes experiance war for the first time.
How he and his fellow Tank crew members deal with whats going on around them and so much more.
Unlike allot of war related books this is one that i can't put down for too long. highly reccomend
