First off, let me apologize for missing the last several Fridays. I was terribly sick and running a raging fever so I didn’t think it wise to post anything lest it be more of a rambling and less factual! But I’m healthy now and so Factual Fridays resume!
This week, I’d like to do more of an update. I’m still reading “The History of Warfare” by John Keegan. I also picked up a book recently called “The Secret Holocaust Diaries – the Untold Story of Nonna Bannister”. Oddly enough, both books mention heavily the Cossacks of the Ukraine and Russia which I thought was a remarkable coincidence.
I picked up a couple of other books awhile back that I thought looked interesting. “Fighting Techniques of the Medieval World – AD 500-1500”. There is a whole series of these books not just by time period but also by geography (i.e. Oriental World). Has anyone read these books? Any feedback?
I’ll be back next Friday with a fresh installment of Factual Fridays. Until then, happy reading!
