Latest in the Joe Pickett series - number 19 I believe. It's a solid entry, but at this point the series isn't breaking much new ground and is a bit formulaic. The series is still good enough that I'll keep up with further installments.

I've not read Leonard before, but Jackie Brown is one of my favorite movies, so I thought I'd read the book on which it is based. The movie has the same general plot as the book, but differs in some details (for instance, Jackie is white in the book and her name is Jackie Burke). The book is excellent.

This refers to Operation Bagration, the Soviet Summer Offensive that began on June 22, 1944. We in the West focus primarily on DDay as the major military event of Summer '44, but it was Bagration that really did in the Wehrmacht, which saw 30 divisions destroyed in the matter of a few weeks. This book is a concise, quick read on the subject.
