      No arrogance that day.

      I recommend 'Crazy Horse and Custer: The Parallel Lives of Two American Warriors' by Stephen Ambrose -

          I have Robt Utley's 'Sitting Bull' on the shelf in hardcover, but haven't read it yet. I've been on a Roman history kick the last few months.

          Since my first visit to Little Bighorn battlefield in '98 (before then I had no interest), I've read Greg Urwin's 'Custer Victorious', Ambrose's book, 'Son of the Morning Star' by Connell, Custer's own 'My Life on the Plains', and several others. I never seem to get tired of it.

          Lots of regrettable things in history, but fascinating

            Cool,my next big acquisition regarding serious tomes is the Folio collection of Rome.
            I already have the Mesopotamians,Hittites,Babylonians,Persians and the Egyptians.
            Then,I got de-railed on the Chinese when they reared their persona and have yet to finish volume II of that work.
            I've got a bunch of early Spanish stuff still to read yet for my rocking chair daze and the Greeks if I ever get that bored.
            The Berbers,Knights Templar and other Monks of War,led me on a long journey several yrs. back.

            and Then there's the English.Lots of time I Hope!

                  A great series Jeff, and one I need to add to my bookshelves

                  Acute bibliophilia ain't for sissies - no e-readers or kindles for me

                  I'm finishing 'Hadrian' by Anthony Everitt right now, then on to either Goldsworthy's 'Caesar', or 'The Poison King' about Mithridates the Great. I love Half-Price Books ...

                  It's too hot to ride ;)

                    You guys should read Penthouse Forum.

                    Very informative
                    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

                            My dad was a big history buff, although more focused than you lot . I lost him 2 months ago, and now have all his reading materials at my house. Early English, Chaucer and the like, and i remember him saying his interest waned after the First Crusade, but he was very into the earlier stuff. Even wrote his own stories based on the time frame, but I haven't found those in my digging yet. Your mention of the Knights Templar reminded me.
