    Low Level Hell (A Scout Pilot in The Big Red One). Just boggles my mind that someone can get shot down 16 times and still live through the campaign.

    D-Day, Stephen Ambrose
    Johnny's Cash and Charlie's Pride, Peter Cooper
    Liberal Fascism, Jonah Goldberg
    and A Crazy, Holy Grace, Frederich Buechner

    D-Day has been a good read so far. Liberal Fascism is top notch. The other two are ok.

    I'm not a math guy, so it may be less interesting or more common knowledge to you. But, I liked Fermats Enigma:
    https://www.amazon.com/Fermats-Enigma-Greatest-Mathematical-Problem/dp/0385493622

    It is one of those I will probably read again.

    Everybody Lies - Big Data, New Data and What the Internet can Tell Us about Who We Really Are by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz. The authors premise is that Google searches are the most accurate and reliable indicator of what we all really think of things and we are the most honest when doing such searches. Backs it up with a lot of research of current events and the resultant Google search data. Didn't know that Google will allow for researchers to query the type and number of Google searches, but apparently they do maintain that type of data base. Surprisingly, PornHub also maintains such a database, those results are indeed interesting! Gotta admit, it has kept my interest, about 1/2 through it.

    Stalingrad, the betrayal by Hitler of the German 6th army in Russia. Absolutely horrific conditions. Less than 1% of the soldiers were able to return to Germany after the war.

    Reading the novel, 12 O’clock High. Pretty good so far, but this is one case where I think the movie is better. The movie tightens up the story, eliminates some extraneous characters and a needless subplot, and does a better treatment of General Savage.

    A Deadly Wandering by Matt Richtel, which was a Christmas gift from mother-in-law. It shows the investigation of an auto accident that led law-enforcement to the conclusion that texting while driving is incredibly dangerous.

    I don't read anything in which I haven't already colored.
