The Corps of Engineers : The War Against Germany (1985) - Beck

Hey Colin:

I know we have this GREAT book listed in the book section on the main site, but was looking up some info for a new friend today, and came across the online copy again. That's when I discovered it is now in KINDLE format too. Very cool, huh?

Ah, yes...

I had bought one for Lee and unbeknown to me, he purchased one for me. Thus, his and hers Kindles for Christmas. Very nice.

I think it's great for simple text manuals and paperbacks. Perfect. Of course nice hardback editions, will always remain in my collection. Those are on a whole other level and cannot be replaced.
