34. It is an interesting book
It is not the normal history type book. It is told in short stories from those who were there. It starts out talking about them and the British government learning the spy game.

The next one on my list is Monte Cassino by Matthew Parker. I am trying to learn as much as I can about where my grandfather was and did during the war. He did not and would not talk about it.
