few years back.  thought it was very well done.

I'm just surprised someone is as big of a geek as me.

EUROPE: Glad to know it's do-able, been on my shelf for years, with another of his, about WWII. Meawhile, I've been reading some true adventure books, not that history isn't, one being GODFORSAKEN SEA by Derek Lundy, about a round-the-world one-man sailing race. With Giles's friend Ian's continuing onslaught of the seas, thought it may be of interest, then along comes this list today from the BY&N Review page: http://tinyurl.com/4y6r8cj
