The WryGuy has a birthday coming and I’d like to find a really good book or two for him. He’s very into WWII stuff, and reads a lot on the subject. Recently, he’s read a biography of Churchill, some stuff about a Japanese soldier who mistakenly thought the war was still going on until sometime in the 1960s, and something along the lines of Band of Brothers by Steven Ambrose (in fact, it might have actually been Band of Brothers for all I know.)
Obviously, this is not stuff I would select, being more inclined to SF myself. So I need some help. I’d prefer to get him something that’s not “bestseller-ish” - and we’ve discovered he’s not a really big fan of Steven Ambrose’s writing.
