More books this week:

First was Reefs and Shoals, an Alan Lewrie series novel, a rapscallion captain in the Napoleonic era. Not quite as good as some of the previous novels in the saga, but good enough to keep me going. I'll move on to the next one, later this year.

Next was Osprey New Vanguard #82: V-2 Ballistic Missile 1942 – 52 talked about the precursors to our Space Program and the modern missile systems. Not bad.

Then there was Osprey New Vanguard #88: British Battlecruisers 1939 – 45: I wonder if you'd call this class of vessel a failure? Heavily armed, fast, but significantly under-armored? Interesting read.
