New Addition…

The latest book to fall through onto the doormat is…

Michael Neifield and Michael Berenbaum (Eds.) The Bombing of Auschwitz: Should the Allies Have Attempted It? (Lawrence, KS: University Press of Kansas, 2003) – This book combines two interests of mine; Air Power History and the Holocaust. It is a good collection of essays and document examining the contentious issue of once they knew about Auschwitz should the Allies have attempted to bomb it. An interesting debate that will never be reconciled I think.

On the blog front I came across the blog of Nicholas Sarantakas who is an Assistant Professor at the US Army Command and General Staff College. His blog, In the Service of Clio, is very interesting as it is not about the subject of History but much rather about the profession and what one can do with a History PhD. There are some very interesting posts especially for those of us who have either just finished or embarking on doctoral studies. The only issue I see if that at the moment in is US centric but I think some general points can be related to experiences elsewhere. Take a read.
