    Ross, these reviews are of intense interest. I try to read them to decide if I want to look for a book. I have recently become interested in the convoy system, so that review was useful. I also have an interest in the role of the IS Navy operations, so that was a helpful review. Now I just have too see if those books are available locally. Post away, and be sure the reviews are read by those interested.

    Ross, I am currently reading Michael Walling's Forgotten Sacrifice about the Arctic convoys. Do you see any reviews about these convoys? The Arctic seems to be an ignored area of concern.

    Lou,

    I do have a forthcoming review of a book on Ireland and the Battle of the Atlantic. Should be posted in the next month or so.

    Somehow I contrived to miss this posting before and have now enjoyed reading the review. The book is in my 'waiting to read' pile.......

    So many books, so little time. These reviews are a great read. They at least provide a means to understand the wide array of books to read. Thanks for these synopses, Ross.

    What irritates me about this book is the title; there were no "ANZACs" in WWII. The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps existed only in WWI.

    Martin and Lou...Glad to help ;-)

    GS...As a military term, you are right it had its place in the First World War but as part of cultural memory and a term that soldiers identified with, it was still common during the Second World War.

    Actually, that is not true. There was an ANZAC Corps, for a very brief time, during the battle for Greece in April, 1941. It was formed on April 12, 1941, by order of Lieutenant General Thomas Blamey.

    Wow. Still another great review. I'm reading about the naval battles around Guadalcanal, so this fits in nicely. I'll look for this book to add to my collection. Thanks for introducing it.
