One good thing about keeping bees is having a bee suit for these situations
Agreed, I also use my veil when we are in marsh fly season. Them buggers are relentless.
I don’t know how many read on here for enjoyment but I just finished a great book. If you’re into WW2 history check out Spearhead by Adam Makos. It’s primarily about a tank crew in the 3rd Armored Division. This same author wrote A Higher Call which is also a great book. That one is about a B17 and a Luftwaffe Ace.
Thanks for the recommendation, I love history!
Tex_77 they are both well written and researched. The author does a good job of showing the human side of the participants as well.
Tex_77 Me too. Always looking for good authors, and I find WWll stuff fascinating. Thanks.
So, if we are talking history and military and recommendations I have a few:
Lessons from the outlaw platoon by sean parnel. For those who know of him this isn’t political at all, just his story of his time spent overseas
Hardcore history by Dan Carlin…litteraly any of his podcasts, they are all amazing and calling them podcasts doesn’t do it justice, they are very in depth.
Extreme Ownership by Jocko
Guns of August
We were young and we were soldiers
Black Hawk down
The second world war by John Keegan
The name of the rose by…emberto someone or other…annoys me that I can’t remember. I did see the movie first on this one so that might have something to do with me enjoying it
THe lost kingdom series (netflix has a shopw on it, havent watched it yet past season 1 but the books are incredible)
The winter king Both of those are by bernard Cornwell
The Alexander the Great series by valerio Manfredi
Jonathon I’ll add in Band of Brothers, The Greatest Generation, and The Worst Hard Time.
Fields of Fire by James Webb. I was given the book for placing first in my class at vehicle recovery school in the Corps. Not a big reader, so I didn’t do anything with it for a while. Got deployed to Somalia and started reading it on the plane. I couldn’t put it down. Great Vietnam book.
