Good stuff. Very well constructed plot arc. McCafferty is a master at his art.

Fascinating account of George "Machine Gun" Kelly and his road to incarceration on "The Rock". Also interesting was the history of that era in the 30's and how the Great Depression created infamous gangsters like Kelly. Highly recommended.

I'd seen the movies, both the old B&W and the newer version with Gary Sinise, but had never read the book until just now.

I couldn't agree with you more. I read this last summer and each page kept me fueled for more and more!

My wife bought this for my birthday in July, knowing I loved the Lincoln book and always read SO MUCh 19th century American history, particularly in regards to Native American issues. It was a really good read.

I'm on the third volume of "The Army of the Potomac" by Bruce Catton. Perfect for pipe smoking on the front porch. When I'm finished I have a copy of Rebel Yell by S.C. Gwynne about Stonewall Jackson:

Right now I am reading Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer. After I finish it I will be reading Stalingrad by Antony Beevor and it the wings is "Forty Miles on Beans and Hay" which is about the American Army during the Indian Wars era.

My cousin sent me this, as he's a big WWII buff. It's a factual account of Bert Stiles and his experiences as 1st Lieut and co-pilot during his required 35 missions in a B-17 Flying Fortress. This greatly interested me since my late Pap piloted B-17's and B-24's during his tour. Pap was one of the lucky ones to come home.

Bert decided to stay on after his required # of missions and then got trained as a fighter pilot. Sadly he was shot down shortly after that and died. He was only 23 years old.

Being as Bert was no accomplished author when he wrote this autobiography while flying the "forts", some of the narrative wanders a bit. And there's plenty of his misc ramblings on other subjects. Sometimes his grammar isn't perfect. No matter though. It's a day by day account of the real lives of real men who put their life on the line for duty and country.
