Hitler's Naval War by Cajus Bekker and She.......
It has a been a productive weekend at home and today as ever saw us on the boot sale run. The two books above were picked up for £1.80 in total with the Bekkar title being a pound. I was quite intrigued by this book as it presents the naval war from the German perspective - in fact the author was a former intelligence office in Hitler's navy - and so will form a nice balance to the 'Anglo-centric' nature of most studies of the era.
'She' by H.Rider Haggard needs little introduction but despite having seen the film ages ago (it was in a double bill with 1,000,000 years BC) I have never read the novel so this will be my train reading for the next few days!
