Book Recommendation


The Last Assassin: The Hunt for the Killers of Julius Caesar by Peter Stothard


Thanks to Shakespeare, every moderately literate person knows that Caesar was assassinated, and that Octavia defeated Antony and Cleopatra to become sole emperor of Rome. But few of us, including me, know what came between. This book remedies that historical gap. The assassination was followed by brutal wars as Octavia and Antony united to hunt down and destroy the assassins, before fighting a war to determine who would rule Rome. It was a near run thing. The real value of this book is to demonstrate how a republic can fall rapidly into an autocracy. America beware.

Past Forgetting: My Love Affair with Dwight D. Eisenhower

by Kay Summersby Morgan 


This is an old book I got interested in having finished the excellent “Liberation Trilogy.” Summersby was Ike’s driver through North Africa into Overlord and Europe. It has a very interesting view of the times. The writing is exceptional, and she has class, grace, and courage. It gives a more human aspect to Ike, not that he had feet of clay, but that he was a man doing the most difficult and stressful job in the world. It’s hard to believe she wrote so well while dying of cancer. An exceptional memoir.


Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens 


I\m late to the party reviewing this, but wanted to find out what all the hype was about. This is a first novel by an exceptional writer. I hope she writes more fiction. It is a murder mystery and a lovely coming of age story skillfully combined. You can’t help but find yourself pulling for the heroine. If you are one of the few who haven’t read this, do yourself a favor.


June 6, 1944: The Voices of D-Day by Gerald Astor 


I followed up reading the excellent “Liberation Trilogy” white wanting to know more how the men for fought and won WWII felt and thought about that dreadful cataclysm. There are other books for grand strategy and generals. This will put you with these men. Too fee today could do what they did. I recommend reading it.
