Rainy Season Reading List

January 6, 2010

With the California “Rainy Season” almost upon us (aka me), it’s time to ready the reading list. I’ve already started a few, and a few others I’m anxious to start reading:


Now that I’ve got a complete fly fishing setup (thanks Leon and Cheryl), it’s time to learn how to use it. After about 40 pages though, it’s safe to say I’m still no Brad Pitt in A River Runs Through It.

Gone through four chapters so far, and can’t put it down. The book is definitely living up to its billing as a must read for anyone who’s interested in post-Weimar Germany.

A quick read at 450 pages, this promises to provide *the* history of the German air force in World War II. Not sure how much I’ll get out of this, but at four bux, it’s a nice addition to the collection.

A re-read and a must-read. The definitive look at the closing phases of the war, Toland does a great job of stitching together stories from all sides of the conflict — the Germans trying to bargain for their lives, the Ango-American tension, and the barbaric march through Germany by the Russians.

What can I say, I love bees.

The story of the Allied race to acquire Germany aviation technology (e.g. the Me-262) before the Russians could do the same.
