Do you happen to know by any chance where to get that book? The closer to Finland, the better.

Right now I'm on the last of five books I had ordered about a month ago. The book is "Ghosts of the Abyss by Don Lynch." It is very interesting. The other four books were:

The Discovery of the Titanic by Robert Ballard
The Discovery of the Bismarck by Robert Ballard
Exploring the Lusitania by Robert Ballard
Return to Titanic by, you guessed it, Robert Ballard


I'm not sure what I will read next. There's a few books I have my eye on.

*holds fingertips to temples* I'm sensing a Bob Ballard theme here... :hmm:

I am now reading It Is A Good Day To Die, a recounting of the Battle of the Little Big Horn by Indians (excuse me, Native Americans) who were there.

I like it. I would give it five stars. The used price can't be beat.

Oh good, thanks. I have one of Solomon's books on passenger stations and it's worth getting for the photographs alone.... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/156...lance&n=283155

lol I just finished Ghosts of the Abyss today. I always hate finishing a good book.

I have started Arc Light by Eric L. Harry. It really isn't my kind of novel, but I thought I would give it a try after reading all the reviews highly praising the book. It is 624 pages so it should take a while.

Just finished

Iron Coffins by Werner
and

Beneath Southern Seas the Silent Service - a coffee table sort of book on our Collins class, lots of good colour pics and interviews with the various crew, Captain, XO, Warfair Off, Comminications Off, Engineer, Navigator, nothing to detailed but just enough to give you a quick idea of them and their station. I think it is released to go with the documentary that SBS did on them. I enjoyed it alot.

Picking up Red Storm Rising from the Libary today

Almost finished Operation Drumbeat by Michael Gannon which has been very good, then I have a few to dive into: Black May (M. Gannon) Convoy (Martin Middlebrook) U333 (Peter Cremer), amongst others.I always keep two books handy for reference: First U-Boat Flotilla (Lawrence Paterson) and U-Boat Command and the Battle of the Atlantic (Jak P. Mallmann Showell). Also I like to keep U-Boat War (Lothar-Gunther Buccheim) handy just to keep looking at and losing myself in his absorbing photos. And finally, I think it is time to dust off The Cruel Sea again, which I reread frequently. I consider this the best fiction book ever written about naval warfare. Henry

(Sorry about original post - I used quote marks around each title and that seemed to cause the errors.)
