My primary reader is now A Sony which I am very happy with. Plays View from the Veranda and the like when I'm not in the mood to read.
I did have a Kindle app on my smart phone but it died with my phone and the PC version seems to have gone with it to my dismay so there are a couple of interesting books whose details aren't easily found again..
The following free ebooks are some of the ones I have enjoyed. They are all available in epub or pdf but some are also available in Kindle.
Cavalry by Lewis Edward Nolan
Memoirs of W T Sherman
Tin Army of the Potomac
Service with the French Army in Africa by Philip Kearny
Adventures of the Connaught Rangers by William Gratton
Commentaries on the Punjab Campaign 1848-49 by A Lawrence.
The Mexican War by an English Soldier.
EXERT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)
"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."
