Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

World War One: History In An Hour

World War One: History In An Hour - Rupert Colley I've always been confused about "the Great War." What were they fighting about? Who was fighting whom? This war definately takes a back seat to WW II in film and History channel air time. So when I saw a free book that promised that I could learn about it in one hour, I said, "Heck yeah." Well, it took me longer than an hour, but I'll blame myself there. However, I finally learned what WW I was all about...fascinating stuff. I would love to rate this higher but sometimes the brevity caused confusion. The appendices proved useful, but I almost think the info would have been more helpful if it was incorperated. All in all, worth the price of admission for sure.
