Currently half way reading through all the Sharpe series again.
Read all those many years ago.Great though they were , my pile of outstanding unread books and lack of stamina won’t let me go through them all over again . Are you into The Last Kingdom series?

Yep, pretty much all Bernard Cornwell writes I have. I do like The Last Kingdom series, but I prefer Sharpe and the Warlord Chronicles. I would normally have quite a few unread books myself but circumstances and lockdown back along got me re-reading books from my extensive library in between new books.

Also working my way through the DVD'S as well.

Enemy at the Gates , William Craig , the book which was the inspiration behind the film of the same name. Classic account of the battle for Stalingrad in all its grim detail. The bloodiest battle in the history of modern warfare which cost the lives of nearly two million soldiers and civilians.It signalled the beginning of the end for the Nazis. An excellent detailed read.

The Keen Land and other stories. Jack Schaefer. Good book of western yarns by the author of Shane.
I also have the thirteenth book and last book of the Last Kingdom series by Bernard Cornwall lined up to read.
