Finished "Gettysburg Magazine" January 2019 Issue 60.

Some of the articles:
What Does the Evidence Say? this is about the decision to fight at Gettysburg.
Who Commanded the Iron Brigade?
Farnsworth Brigade in the Gettysburg Campaign.

Always good tactical studies and supporting maps.

Finished "Be Your Own Napoleon: How would you command ten of history's greatest Battles?" by William Seymour.

This is a bad title as the battles show options at certain points of a battle or campaign, but you don't get to choose.  It was published before with the title of "Yours to Reason Why" (which I think I also have somewhere in my library, but couldn't find it).

The ten battles/chapters are:
Crecy Campaign
Agincourt Campaign
The Third Civil War
Saratoga, Setting the Scene
Saratoga, Confidence and Confounded
Saratoga, Defeat and Surrender
Waterloo, 1-17 June
Waterloo, 18 June
Background to Chancellorsville
Palestine 1917
Anzio; background to beachhead
Anzio; Battle for survival
Anzio; Breakout.

Somewhat dated (written in 1982).

Finished "The German Fleet at War: 1939-1945" by Vincent P. O'Hara.  Very good as it describes all sizes of actions, from the Bismarck to S-Boats.  This is very similar to the naval book I previously read and posted here which had individual actions in the different theaters from 1914 to 1918.

This does not discuss the U-Boats, but the surface fleet.  After the major units were eliminated or bottled up, the Germans fought to avoid defeat rather than to dominate the waters around Britain.  However, they did a good job of this against the Russians.

Lots of small actions and well worth the read.
