Eisenhower – A Soldiers Life, is a 2002 book by Carlo D'Este, whose book on the Normandy campaign I finished a couple of months ago. It's a 2002 hardcover with dust jacket first edition, and should provide a good source for additional detail on Eisenhower's assignments during the war, which is a subject I'm interested in reading more about. The book on Normandy reflected a detailed knowledge of Eisenhower, so I'm looking forward to seeing how much more the author learned in the subsequent 20 years.
One Hundred Years Of U.S. Navy Airpower is a 2010 Naval Institute Press book (first printing) consisting of a collection of chapters by multiple authors edited by Douglas V. Smith. I am most interested in the two chapters on U.S. aircraft carrier evolution by Norman Friedman, which I expect will bring up to 2010 the information contained in his 1983 design history. I've already skimmed chapters and the endnotes for information on postwar Essex reconstruction.
I also picked up via Amazon earlier this week Arthur Phillips' new book The King At The End Of The World, which is about an ottoman delegation to the court of Queen Elizabeth I. I remember reading his prior book The Egyptologist years ago, and thinking it was brilliant and had been urged to find some new fiction to read in paper. It's hardcover and happened to be a first edition.
Finally, I saw that Ben Aaronovitch had a new Rivers Of London book out, False Value, and as I am desperately fond of anything narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, and needed something to listen to on the long drive home last night, I got the audiobook of it.
