Just finished "Finland at War: The Winter War" by Vese Nenye et al.

A good account of the events of 1939-40. Volume two details the Continuation and Lapland Wars - one of the few books in English to do so.

I am reading "the child of the peonza" by José Barceló. It is based on real events. The protagonist is Hubert Sasse, a member of the crew of the U-755, whose corpse reached the Spanish coasts. It is very well written and narrated, I am convinced that you will love it. I was so impressed by the story. I recommend it to everyone. Astonishing in every respect. If you want to document, I leave the web where you can do it:
Https://www.uhistoria.com/uhistoria/...inhistoria.htm
You can special interest in the text written in yellow.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
The book is in Spanish, but I think it will be in English too.

I just finished reading French Battleships of World War One by John Jordan and Phillipe Caresse. I've reviewed it for Amazon, if anyone's curious: https://www.amazon.com/review/R35XCM...SIN=1591146399

The Divine Wind: Japan's Kamikaze Force in World War II by Rikihei Inoguchi & Tadashi Nakajima, with Roger Pineau.

This is the ebook edition from the Microsoft Store. I had the paperback for years, but lost it in the flood last August.

I'm trying to get my hands on Michael A. Palmer's The War That Never Was (1993), supposedly better than even Red Storm Rising.

However, it's pretty much impossible to find here in Argentina. Might have to import it.

Been meaning to check out those books.

Fun fact: One of the co-authors, Toni Wirtanen, is better known as the singer in a Finnish rock band "Apulanta".


Started reading Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia by Joseph Pistone. Good read so far.

I've just started reading Tiger! The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth by Stuart McKay. It's quite fascinating, but being a 400-page tome with very small text, it's going to take a serious investment in time and concentration.

I recently finished Vought F-8 Crusader: Development of the Navy's First Supersonic Jet Fighter. You can read my review here if you're interested: https://www.amazon.com/review/R2VKX5...SIN=1580072429
