Book Bag!

First of all, please remember the check out the Homeschooling Blogger Awards 2005.

Then I would like to share my bookbag for this week! Here is what I found...

1. Assault in Norway - Sabotaging the Nazi Nuclear Program
Cool book. :-)

2. The Pueblo Incident

Update! As David was good enough to explain to me, I did not at all grasp this story's gist by reading its preface. Here is the information David gave me.

Actually, the USS Pueblo was attacked by MiGs and six NK naval vessels, and there was a fight. The battle lasted over an hour. A number of members of the Pueblo's crew were wounded (1 killed), even though it was not a combat vessel. Better re-check your sources. A great place to start would be "Bucher: My Story, by Commander Lloyd M. Bucher USN, Captain of the USS Pueblo.

Thanks David!

3. Around the World in Eighty Days - An interesting classic about a man driven to cross the world by train, steamer, and elephant in eighty days.

4. The FBI-KGB War
This one sounds cool. :-)

5. Salvo!
A goodly volume which details the grandest and the lowest days of those floating batteries, the battleships.

That's all for now!

Ahh, ok thank you David. I have not yet read the book and took my summery from the introduction which I must have misread. Thank you for the correction! I look forward to finding out more about this incident.
