Books, Films

Just read 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff.  If you want an attack on Clinton and Obama's honesty, wrong book.  There are bits and pieces that demolish their claims about why and how this happened, but mostly this is an adventure story of courage under fire, and quite gripping.   For those who fantasize about the coming civil war in this country, here's some reality to encourage you to try and clean up our mess through ballots, not bullets, if still possible.

The Railway Man (2013) stars Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in a film about torture, war crimes, forgiveness and oral redemption.  Powerful. Film.


Just started Andrew Nagorski's Hitlerland:American Eyewitnesses to the Nazi Rise to Power.  
 No, not an amusement park for Europeans who miss the good old days.  Quite interesting so far.


  1. If you know, how does this compare with "The Coming of theThird Reich" by Richard Evans?
