Let us open this evening's post with a couple of books I finished reading this afternoon.

First was Osprey New Vanguard #149: Tudor Warships (2): Elizabeth I's Navy, a pretty solid book chock full of information about the English forces that went up against the Armada. A pretty good bit of data.

The second was Osprey New Vanguard #21: Merkava Main Battle Tank MKs I, II & III, a treatise about the Israeli home-grown weapon system that they were forced to adopt because they couldn't depend on European sources. This book is a little out of date, because the Merkava IV has been in use for some years, already, but the history of the Israeli Tank Corps in here was enlightening.
