This blog has, unfortunately, fallen by the wayside. I have had a great deal of health struggles this past year and it has put me quite far behind in my reviews. Unfortunately, those health struggles are not going away as I have two chronic illnesses, so I'm learning to accept a new normal and to focus my limited energies on the things that are truly important to me. Writing about World War 2 history remains one of my passions, so I definitely have no plans to abandon the blog. 

If you sent me a book to review and I haven't done it yet, please accept my apology. I hope to get to all of them at some point. 

Thank you for understanding.

 I wish you a wonderful 2016!

Hi Melissa, I so sorry to hear about your health problems and wish you all the best in the coming year. I always look forward to your posts, since you cover parts WWII that I don't. Regardless of how often or seldom you post, I'll be there reading what you have to say.
Wishing you a Happy New Year!

I regret that I only now discovered your fine blog. Thank you for preserving the archives, which I will browse, and I wish you happiness and good health in the future. My new blog -- America and World War 2 -- will rely upon and give recognition to your archives for some ideas and links. Best wishes, Charles.
