Went to the wayback machine. Last weekend read The Cardinal of the Kremlin

Started Clear and Present Danger. This message is on the first page:

Dad,
Merry Christmas '89
Love, Ric, Corey and Brenden

Me and my brothers.

Plan on going through the whole series minus Patriot Games and Hunt for Red October. Don't have those.

Picked this up at Sam's Club yesterday:

They were just setting them out. The lady said "not sure if they're supposed to go out today, there's no date on the box." Checked Amazon when I got home and the release date is set for Tuesday.

Just finished this short book. A German military historian wrote the book in German; this is an English translation. The book gives a high level discussion of the war in the east, not just 1941. Interestingly, the author points out some weaknesses of the Wehrmacht that contributed to losing the war.

Currently reading "Rising Sun" by John Toland. I started in the middle and am now reading the section concerning the internal Japanese discussions with regard to surrender. The internal chaos was even worst than I thought.
