I'm looking for recommendations for non-fiction books for Uncles/Dads etc.I'd like a nice hardback, perhaps with a military theme that would make a good Christmas pressie.Hope you can help !
DH loves all Redmond O'Hanlon's books and when pushed suggests "In Trouble Again: A Journey Between the Orinoco and the Amazon" as the best.www.amazon.co.uk/In-Trouble-Again-Journey-Between/dp/0140119000
I've a couple in mind for DH along those lines - Christmas in the Trenches and The Christmas Truce - both WWI books but with the christmas factor.Thought they'd make a good present - both on Amazon
Thanks both. I was looking for something a bit more modern, something about Afghanistan perhaps. Any ideas gratefully received!
My DH has read Cables from Kabul which he thought was alright....Afghan is still a bit fresh for books about it....Quite a lot of stuff about Iraq and Balkan conflicts though.Another good one was Double Cross by Ben Macintyre - spies etc.
Separate friends highly recommended this:www.amazon.co.uk/The-Going-Down-Sun-Afghanistan/dp/1906308624Looks good so I've bought a copy. I'll post what I think when it arrives.Thanks for all your suggestions!
