Wade's Physical Books Giveaway - Last Chance Round


Recommended Posts

The following titles catch my eye:

Arsenals of Folly 

Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar

The Fall of Berlin 1945

 

I'd like to claim them!

 

 

Also, I highly recommend The Dead Hand if any of you want to be paranoid about something else in life. I already have a copy :sun:

Apologies, I'm with family this weekend, my grandfather passed. Haven't really been here much. 

 

I wouldn't mind Killing Pablo and Ghost Wars. Thanks. 

My sympathies to you and your family :(

 

I'll get those books off to you tomorrow or Monday!

I am actually going through them right now, Wade.

 

I feel like the other batches had more subtitles to indicate what they are about, so I am looking some up.

 

So far I would like Warlord and The Fall of the British Empire. I am guessing the Peace to End All Peace is about the Versailles treaty(in which case I am definitely interested), but that's one I am looking up beforehand.

Ok, here's my list.

 

Warlord

The Decline and Fall of the British Empire

A Peace to End all Peace

The War of the World

D-Day

The Devil's Disciples

The Guns at Last Light

Von Braun

 

Thanks :)

 

I think I avoided listing any that were already picked.

@Chairslinger - The Guns at Last Light is the final volume of the Liberation Trilogy and The Day of Battle is the second - would you like that one as well?  An Army at Dawn is the first book, but I no longer have that one.

 

The trilogy is in order of American involvement in the European theater:

An Army at Dawn - North Africa (Operation Torch)

The Day of Battle - Sicily/Italy (Operation Husky)

The Guns at Last Light - Northeast Europe (Operation Overlord)

Alright - I've got the books for @johnny and @Chairslinger (who needs to let me know if he's interested in The Day of Battle) ready to go!

 

Any WWII fans interested in Absolute War: Soviet Russia in the Second World War as a last minute addition?  I'm looking at you @CastlevaniaNut18 and @Chairslinger :p or are you totally satisfied with your acquisitions?

I will take the book you suggested. And of the WWII books Hunting Evil and Wages of Destruction sound good.

 

I have to say thanks again, Wade. You have substantially increased the size of my library :sun:

Excellent!

Is Wages still available? Big fan of economics of war, haven't read it. 

 

Aren't you in Alexandria Wade? I'll come raid your collection :pratt: Or, you know, buy you a beer in exchange for the good reads.
