Hello, To clarify: is this query only regarding modern memoirs or would early modern material be of use as well? I am working on the early modern military and could contribute a number of English and German soldiers' memoirs. Thanks and all best, Nikolas Funke Nikolas Funke <N.M.Funke@sussex.ac.uk> -----Message from: P.Johnston <firstname.lastname@example.org>----- Can I recommend the excellent 'Journey with a Pistol' by Neil McCullum, an account of his expereinces a sa subaltern with the British Army during the North African and early Italian campaigns. In terms of aerial warfare, I'd also recommed 'Sagittarius Rising' by Cecil Lewis, an account of WWI fighter combat, and Richard Hilary's 'The Last Enemy,' an account of early Second World War aerial combat. The similarities between the two in terms of mentalities and self-awareness of the nature of the war in the air are quite remarkable. Yours, Peter Johnston P.Johnston <email@example.com> -----Message from: Brandon Hone <firstname.lastname@example.org>----- Not sure what you have yet, but I like *Jarhead* by Anthony Swofford for Gulf War I. *We Were Soldiers Once, and Young* by Hal Moore. *The Things They Carried *by Tim O'Brien (more fictional, but I really enjoy it). I know there are plenty more, these are just a couple off the top of my head. -- Brandon Hone History Graduate Student Utah State University Brandon Hone <email@example.com> -----Message from: CHOPPIN@aol.com----- You might be interested in my book, published last year, that includes stirring biographies of 17 men and three women I interviewed, as well as their families and friends. Their life histories cover America's wars from World War I to today and include many stories of personal experiences by ordinary soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. www.CJHoppin.com Chris C. J. Hoppin, Lt.Col., USAF-Ret. CHOPPIN@aol.com -----Message from: jemagica <firstname.lastname@example.org>----- I recommend an absolutely awesome book called A Thousand Shall Fall by Hans Habe. He was a foreign volunteer in the French Army in 1939-'40. It is gripping and one does not often see the experience of the campaign presented from the French side in English. Best, Jonathan Epstein, Ph.D. jemagica <email@example.com> -----Message from: Harley Melton <firstname.lastname@example.org>----- If I may, I would submit my book, Touch Not This Wall. A story of the Vietnam War...and after.
