Added books to the TBR pile ending August 12th

Yes I've stolen the idea from Andrew Wheeler. Perhaps someone will be interested in comparing just how fast something makes it from the to be read mountain to the completed bookcase. I'll try to do this every week we will see how long that is going to last. I'll be more likely to post if I don't have something else to put up on a Monday. Occasionally something will probably get reviewed before it gets listed in one of these posts. If I happen to be done a book and some new mail has arrived then I'll often grab something from the new package instead of from the pile.

  • Clayton, Anthony Forearmed: History of the Intelligence Corps I've been looking for more guerrilla warfare material this has a chapter devoted to it. The rest looks interesting.
  • Arnold, James R. Tet Offensive 1968: Turning Point in Vietnam another Osprey title unfortunately this is the first edition they've already released a third.
  • Committee on Foreign Relations and the Committee on the Judiciary International Terrorism, Insurgency, and Drug Trafficking:Present Trends in Terrorist Activity From Joint Hearings before the Committee on Foreign Relations and the Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. Senate (Ninety-Ninth Congress) first session May 13, 14 and 15, 1985. After a quick look through the contents this will probably go straight to the reference shelf.
  • Magyar, K. P. Prolonged Wars: A Post Nuclear Challenge an US Army study.
  • Reynolds, Richard T. Heart of the Storm: The Genesis of the Air Campaign Against Iraq, Volume 1 official history.
  • Simon, Jeffrey editor Security Implications of Nationalism in Eastern Europe. Conference proceedings which apparently has some good summaries of the situation before the collapse of the Soviet Union.
