Somehow there just wasn't time to post about any books I finished for the last week or so. I guess I should catch up.

First was Osprey Command #17: Bill Slim, a short biographical piece about a highly successful British commander in Asia during WWII. This covered a part of the war of which I knew only a little, so I got something out of reading it.

Second was Valor's Choice, a book that's been on my to-be-read pile for a long time. It was suggested to me to be read again by my friend Bob who was apparently re-reading it when last I saw him. A quick and exciting read, it deals with military SF, when a small number of younger races are recruited to help defend older, non-violent races from an invading horde of other aliens. I plan on continuing reading the series, as well as the author, Tanya Huff.

Finally, Osprey Command #15: Walther Model; this one deals with a German general who fought on both fronts and did well with what he had. Sad ending.
