- Grace Hayes, The History of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in World War II: The War Against Japan
One of the best books on World War II I've ever read. (And I've read quite a few.) I'd buy a copy but I can't find one. ADFA's copy is now full of Post-It notes marking pages for my thesis.
- Rosalind Wiseman, Queen Bees and Wannabes
Girls being girls. Non-fiction, but filmed as Mean Girls.
- Brigadier P. J. Greville, The Royal Australian Engineers 1945-1972
Here's someone who obviously didn't have no word limit to reckon with. At 980 pages, it's big. Repetitious too. Presumably it either got lost in the edit or he didn't believe that anyone would read the whole thing. Still, it covers many things that aren't covered anywhere else.
New on Shelf:
- Kim Akass and Janet McCabe, Reading Sex and the City
