A Treatise on the Tactical Use of the Three Arms: Infantry, Artillery, and Cavalry

by Francis J. Lippitt

Written in 1865 this book accurately describes strategy in the age of horse and musket. The writing style is brief and to the point and backed up with examples. A very interesting book.

On Uncle Sam's Water Wagon

by Helen Watkeys Moore

Some really interesting old recipes in this book. Many of them include a quarter of a pound of sugar per cup or chemicals that would get you put on a no-fly list but it's still a fascinating read. It's worth reading just for the grand names given to the various concoctions. I'll definitely be trying a few of them.

The Ghost Ship

by John C. Hutcheson

Quite a good read if you like a nautical yarn but it would have worked just as well as a short story and feels a bit drawn out, especially when a second story is tacked on at the end. The convincing depiction of life at sea and the people of Haiti might be enough to keep you reading though.

Celtic Literature

by Matthew Arnold

This is really not that good, there's an awful lot of waffle and personal opinions and little about the subject except the most sweeping of statements.

It's ironic that the only person to review this so far is Greg Homer because like him the author is overly fond of the sound of his own voice, repetitive and nowhere near as amusing as he thinks he is.
