Yes, that is what day it is today!
I’m going through two tomes at this moment.
The first is Hunter Killer by Lt Col T. Mark McCurley. It’s all about the use of drones or Remotely Piloted Aircraft in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If you like books that shed light on newer developments in weapons technology or just like Military History in general, it’s a good read.
The author and his colleagues in the USAF were pioneers in the employment of RPA’s and their use is only going to become more important in the conflicts of the future.
The second book I’m reading right now is Incredible Pirate Tales, edited by Tom McCarthy and it’s a real page-turner.
I’m going through The Ghost of Captain Brand at this moment and am enjoying it immensely!
If you’re not already immersed in a good book, it’s time you were. And what better time to recover your love of reading than on National Read A Book Day?
