Yesterday was light at the office, thanks to staff realizing I was ill, and so I managed to at various times during the day sit down with my Ematic and finish off two books.

First was Osprey Campaign #225: Messines 1917: The Zenith of Siege Warfare, which dealt with the use of underground diggings and mining in the trench warfare of WWI.
