James Donaldson’s Book Review – JFK and the Unspeakable by James Douglass

I think this book and the author, took us on a very interesting journey through the Oval Office, and the Cold War years, during the JFK administration.

I thought this was a great look back at 2012 during the presidential campaign between Mitt Romney and incumbent Pres. Barack Obama. I really follow that presidential campaign very closely, and was fascinated by even then, the great divide in the country, and you can see then, what is been played out even in today’s […]

For all of you history buffs out there, this was an interesting look at Hitler’s Nazi regime during World War II, as they sought to ensure their supply lines to the troops as they became increasingly spread out and fighting on both the Eastern and Western fronts, which we all know by history now, eventually […]
