"Jmnlman" over at Strategist's Personal Library has issued a challenge for folks to read 3 books on military history between now and Veteran's Day (or should that be Armistice Day, which it was called when I was a little girl). Reading some military history books is one of those things that I keep putting on the back burner but that I know I really need to do to fully understand my ancestors' involvement in the various wars or to understand the times in which they lived. I will link the reviews of the three books to this post as I complete them. I think there are other genea-bloggers out there who may also be interested in signing up for this challenge!
