Now reading "War in Cameroon. The Invention of Françafrique"
Françafrique is a word we use to describe the shadowy relations between France and its former African allies, usually involving installing, supporting and/or deposing local dictators to suit our foreign policy & oil/gas needs.

Some books I've read:

Image

One of my favourite books, it focuses on the author's journey through the Second World War. It details his experiences, first with the LRDG in the Middle East on missions behind enemy lines spreading alarm and despondency till he is given command of his own unit doing exactly the same thing in Africa and then Italy.

The best way to explain this book is that it's about, in the author's own word's from the introduction:

"My excuse for asking strangers to read a book mainly about myself is that they may be interested in the record of events that led me and a few friends to considerable happiness."

I highly recommend this book and encourage anyone who reads this post to at least read about "Popski's Private Army" online.

Image

Another really good book, the author is Chaim Herzog who not only fought in the Israeli military at the start of its independence, but became one of its presidents. Lots of good information inside.

Image

Also another good book in the same vein as the first two.

Well, I'm kind of cheating, I'm not reading it, it's a belated Christmas present to my roommate, just skimmed though a couple of pages before wrapping it, will prob give it a full read after he's done with it.

That's volume 2 of a larger study on the revolution brought to warfare by Napoleon or the Napoleonic era.
Volume 1 was dealing with the operational level, this one with the tactical one.
