Semper Fi, Y’all


I just finished my first book on my new Kindle Paperwhite – “The Second World War” by Antony Beevor.

Beevor has written several books about the war that were full of fascinating stuff. This book had some interesting insights into the thinking that shaped the post-war world.

And there were little gems I’d never known, like the fact that the Confederate Battle Flag was raised by U.S. Marines who captured Shuri Castle, a strategic high point, during the Battle of Okinawa.

I did an internet search and found a more detailed account, along with this photo.
