Robert E. Lee and the American Civil War em History: On learning from and writing history (Agosto 2014)


Got this book from my mom from the CCHS library. Read in the winter of 2023 (most of it during my trip to Norfolk, VA). This was by far the most reading I have done on President Eisenhower so it was a very interesting an informative read. I read this right after completing the Last Lion trilogy, so this expanded on my knowledge of WWII in Europe.

His devotion to duty combined with his humility enabled him to focus on his ever challenging work, most notably his role as Supreme Commander in Europe, and prevented him from being focused on his own individual exploits and ego. Probably not the best book about Ike, but one that I had on the shelf for free and was able to read pretty quickly.… (mais)

Detailed account of the Battle of Britain and how the country was more prepared for it than people had thought. It was a near thing though. This is a good one.
