Lately I've been reading quite a few books about WWII and the history of the world from the late 1800's- through the 1980's. Ok I'm totally a geek. I love to read mysteries for relaxing but I do not want my mind to go to mush! Some books have been more tedious than others but it's eye opening.
I finally read about the battle ground that we visited in Ukraine. We traveled by van through some rough roads and up a small mountain to get to the battle ground that stretched as far as the eye could see. I appreciated it then, but really did not know the historical value as I do now. I also caught some footage of that battle on the Military channel a few nights ago. That was exciting to me.
