Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an old and out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:
Miller, Marshall Lee. Bulgaria during the Second World War. Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 1975
Not a rip-roaring combat narrative, but a fine example of a political/diplomatic history of the sort it would be nice to have for each nation during the war years. In this case, Bulgaria probably wins the "least effective diplomacy" award for finding itself in 1944 simultaneously at war with the Soviet Union, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany....

News from Joe Balkoski
Joe Balkoski writes to us: "I have signed a contract with Stackpole Books to write a detailed history of the Omaha Beach landing, June 6, 1944. It should be in the stores in early 2004. It will depend heavily on first-person accounts written down as close as possible to the actual event. I'm about three-quarters through the manuscript as of April 2003, and I've discovered a lot of interesting new material on the landing."
