As is usual for collaborations by these three authors, I found this book to be enjoyable to read, but it's not particularly deep. I enjoyed the characters, and I especially like the connections to other books by these authors (but this book stands on its own), but I think that alternating between three characters/timelines thins the story out too much and makes it difficult to keep characters straight.

This story follows the men of Easy Company, 506th regiment, 101st Airborne division of the US army from their training camp in Georgia, to England to the allied invasion of Normandy on D-day. Informative, detailing and action packed. Band of Brothers is a must read for any WWII geek or action seeking reader. Must read of the X-mas break!

Truly a beautiful novel seamlessly combining a modern time with the past. I was so invested in this whole story that I didn‘t want it to come to a close! From the twist to the mixing with the modern times this historical fiction was beautiful. My heart was racing at times for the WWII characters Irene and Cordelia, other times my heart broke for them. One of my favorite WWII books lately!

This was a book club pic, otherwise I wouldn‘t have finished it. It's a fictional account of one of Hitler‘s personal food tasters. Despite working for the Führer, she hates him and wants to kill him. The story is incredibly repetitive while also not making a lot of sense. It was an eye-rolling exercise in frustration. The premise is fascinating, but it's badly executed and the ending is ridiculous.

Excellent book.

On the night of 31 May 1942 three Japanese midget submarines crept into The Sidney Australia harbour, past eight electronic indicator loops, past six patrolling Royal Australian Navy ships, and past an anti-submarine net stretched across the inner harbour entrance. Their arrival triggered a night of mayhem, courage, chaos and high farce which left 27 sailors dead and a city bewildered.

Texreader A Japanese mini sub is at the Nimitz museum in Fredericksburg. It is crazy that anyone would be willing to be in that tiny tube for any length of time. 3d

Back to school has hit our family like a ton of bricks. I‘ve watched Fleabag AND You - and I‘m not much of a TV gal and managed to get in 50 pages a week for the #chunksterchallenge2020. It‘s about half what I‘d hoped but half is so much better than none!
