Book/Movie Reviews:

Struggle for the Middle Sea by Vincent O'hara - The charts and order of battles are very informative, but the narrative is compromised by what seems like a very biased view.  It felt like Mr. O'hara went into writing this book trying to prove that the Italian navy of WWII was competent, instead of reading the evidence and following where it took him.

"Proud" 2004

A great movie about the USN DE 529 USS Mason, the first primarily crewed by African-Americans.  Story told by Ozzie Davis in retrospect, with actual WW II footage of the Mason in combat.  Based on director Mary Pat Kelly's book, "Proudly We Served".

I've just obtained A Night Before Christmas By Jacquin Sanders (SS Leopoldville troopship disaster '44) which was listed as new and is indeed sealed in plastic. However it doesn't have a dust jacket which I expected and so I immediately thought it wasn't new. Looking online it seems the HB was reprinted with out a DJ and only the original edition had a DJ.

Slightly disappointed as the DJ looks great, really dramatic. Was not cheap to get but I wanted to learn the story and the amazon reviews were good.

Just wondering if anybody else has any info.

PS. Seems this whole section could do with a rethink as it doesn't seem to see the light of day, I only stumbled upon it.

Has good potential if it can be brought more into the mainstream.
