        Just finished Spitfire (see my earlier post) Now reading Without Mercy by Jack Higgins.
        Waiting in the wings:
        Military Blunders
        Military Misdemeanours
        Blood on the Sea: The part of HMS Dunedin in the Enigma capture.
        Blenheim;The preparation
        and a good few more, I seem to have a constant 2 year backlog of books to read and just when I think I'm making progress it's Christmas or my birthdy and people buy me more books.
        The mind once expanded by a new idea never returns to its original size.

          "The Road Back", the sequel to Erich Maria Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front" Fascinating story of weary soldiers struggling to readjust to civilian life. Which leads me to ask if anyone can tell me the name of the famous American film about servicemen in the same situation after WWII? Can't for the life of me remember.

                  No problem, I just remember this movie had Dana Andrews
                  due to the fact he was walking through an ww2 aircraft graveyard at the beginning(just googled it on youtube somebody has posted the graveyard scene) one of these film images that sticks with you from years ago

                    Can anyone recommend any books giving accounts of historic or dramatic flights, not necessarily non fiction?

                        The Battle of Britain on Screen by S P Mackenzie.

                        Basically a round-up of all the attempts to recreate the battle for the cinema and TV audience.

                              'Spirit of St Louis'
                              By some chap called Charles Lindbergh
                              We have all seen the film but how many have read the book ?
                              I read it many years ago but remember it as an extrememly well written autobio - has been described as 'eloquent'.

                                    Surprising there's never been a re-make with the inevitable Leonardo Dicaprio in the lead role.
