Bits and pieces this week and so I hit the first goal.

First book finished was Osprey Campaign #42: Bagration 1944: The Destruction of Army Group Center, the battles that completely changed the strategic initiative on the Eastern Front in WWII. Nicely done in a fairly short format.

Next was Osprey Elite #54: UN Forces 1948 – 94, a good review of United Nations peacekeeping efforts during that period.

Then, Lamb: A Global History, in other words lamb as food. There's some recipes at the end of the book.

I followed that with Osprey Fortress #60: The Forts of the Meuse in World War I, which brought back memories of playing an old board game called 1914 by Avalon Hill. Interesting material.

Finally, Osprey Men-At-Arms #60: Scandinavian Armies in the Napoleonic Wars. Aside from what the British did to the Danes, I was unaware of most of this historic material so I found it pretty fascinating. The plates are meh, but the supporting text was worth reading.

Work on various things about the house continues in preparation for later this month's event. Beyond that, what's to say? One of two woodpiles has been cleared out; the other is pretty large but it's in an out-of-the-way spot so it can be left for now. It rained again overnight, thank goodness...
