    Hell yes i have. Plenty of them as a matter of fact, but they're in my garage right now. I'll send you the info tomorrow. I also have plenty on the Vietnam and Gulf as well. But WW2 is the best imo.
    I have family that served in each of these. I'll get it to you man.

    That's a WWI book. Probably the most boring book Ive ever read.

    There is so much to WW2 that asking for a book is very broad.


    I love ww2 but not so much with the politics of it.. Sure I know a good amount of information on that subject but I enjoy the actual battles much more..

    I have read books on bombers (17's and 25's) infantry units, and my favorite Submarines..

    One of my favorite war stories is Guns Up! by Johnnie Clark, but that's Nam.

    Bedford Boys by Alex Kershaw and The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan are both about D-Day; Flags of Our Father's by James Bradley is about Iwo Jima. Stephen Ambrose wrote a couple including the Band of Brothers.

    i am a WWII buff, i collect era weapons and equipment. i like to read the foot soldiers perspective about war. i recommend: "the forgotten soldier" by guy sajer......a german infantryman. and also..."a mind in prison": the memoir of a son and soldier of the third reich. remember now....they were just FOLLOWING ORDERS.
