Kind of a slow month for me but I did read Erich Raeder: Admiral of the Third Reich (A) and ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror (B).

Arfaioli's The Black Bands of Giovanni, a dissertation about a mercenary unit from the Italian Wars, was about the only mil-hist I read in October.

Read A Hawk at War by Thomas Brotherton which was a very good anecdotal memoir of a British cavalry officer in the Peninsula. Also Douglas Bader by Dilip Sarkar which was very well researched but I had some problems with the author's moralizing. Would have preferred that he stuck to the facts and let the reader draw his own conclusions about Bader's character. Also read Flame Thrower by Andrew Wilson about a British Churchill Crocodile tank commander in WW2 which was quite good.
