Birthday Present Finally Arrived
A photo of the book I gave to myself for my (recently passed) birthday, that arrived yesterday sent by Amazon. Lee Hadley of Big Lee's Miniature Adventires blog fame brought my attention into it in a recent post commenting several WW II books.
This a large-size and 600 page-thick tome featuring the trip of the author, Jean Paul Pollard to the North African battlefields in 2011 (from Tunisa to Egypt). Armed with a camera, he spent several months taking photos of the same locations of the contemporary war-era photos. Really interesting and a real must for anyone interested in this was theater.
Excellent and highly recommendable, just enjoying it tonight sitting in my favourite reading sofa and drinking a truly cold beer (summer already arrived to madrid today!)
