Black Ops forum

Any of you study WWII in your free time? I so, what books have you read that you thought were really good?

For me, Rick Atkinsons Liberation Trilogy (3rd one is still not out) was the best to date. Both An Army at Dawn and The Day of Battle were fantastic books.

German Sniper. Is that the one that was actually written by a sniper? I think Winston Groom talked about it a bit in 1942. All I remember is some part where the sniper thought he was being sent ona suicide mission and took his Gewehr in to have a telescopic site added.

Theres a good one called "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors". Its about a group of destroyer escorts called Taffy 3 holding of half of the japanese navy. An incredible true story.
