Reading List

Reading on my Kindle:
Commerce Raider CSS Alabama
W.T. Sherman
G.W. Carver
From Merchantmen at Arms

Books I got for Christmas (hardcovers):
Merchantmen at Arms (2nd ed) (link is to an e book version)

Outlaws of the Ocean

The Barbary Pirates (notable because it was written by C.S. Forester)

Then I got a collection of paperback books of the sort we used to pass around at sea before modern electronics (and no, not the sort of books you have in mind) but westerns, akin to Louis L'Amour: The Trail Ends at Hell, Brand of the Bullet, Hell in His Holsters, and the classic Ensign Pulver (unnecessary rip off of Mr. Roberts,in my view).

    Yes! Thank you for the Merchantmen at Arms link. I am in the process of reading.
    I still have the hyperwar World War II link you posted last year.
