Cripes!   Worried

It sounds as though I've executed the perfect surprise attack.

I didn't expect that.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Are you a smoker, by any chance?

Phoenix Squadron by Rowland White.

https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/100/1007911/phoenix-squadron/9780552152907.html

Great "True Story" about the British mission to protect Honduras in 1970's, featuring my all time favourite aircraft - the Blackburn Buccaneer!

Finished "Armies and enemies of Louis XIV: Volume 1 - Western Europe 1688-1714: France, Britain, Holland" by Mark Allen.  As it says on the back cover, "This book originally saw the light of day a a long running series of articles in Wargames Illustrated in the late 1980s."

A uniform boo with the listing of regiments for the countries named as well as illustrations.  Printed by Helion.

Finished "War in the East: A Military History Of The Russo-Turkish War 1877-78" by Quintin Barry.  I like his books.

Good explanations, relatively good OB's, maps a bit small in scale (or my eyes aren't as good as they used to be).

Easy to read and about a period I know next to nothing, so I enjoyed it.

Finished "The Campaign of Waterloo" by John Codman Ropes.  I don't believe I had read it before and was impressed with the arguments he makes regarding who was responsible for what.  Ney and Grouchy don't come off well, but then neither does Napoleon.

Fast read for me being interested in Napoleonics.
