Another year older, and that means some gifts for yours truly.   I thought I’d share with ya’ll what the collective haul looked like… it was a good year, i.e. no shirts for a change.  

I got three new books that all look pretty good:

  • The Gettysburg Companion – Mark Adkin.  This looks to be a very comprehensive look at the biggest battle of the American Civil War.  Lots of maps & detail.
  • Once There Were Titans  – Kevin Kiley.  Examines the military careers of 50+ generals of the French army during the Napoleonic wars.  Many stories about the marshals, but a number of lesser-known generals as well.   
  • Prussia’s Glory – Christopher Duffy.  Examines the battles of Rossbach & Leuthen in the Seven Years War in detail.  Any book on 18th or 19th century military history written by Professor Duffy is worth having.

I also scored some nice whiskey glasses, a bottle of Maker’s Mark, a bottle of Laphroaig and an Amazon gift card.  All in all a good haul, and I now have my reading list more or less set for some time to come.
