Military History To Be Read pile for 2016

Military History on my To Be Read pile for 2016

Rather belatedly, this is a book I keep meaning to read, and now have a copy

The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914: Christopher Clark

From the Amazon description:-
The pacy, sensitive and formidably argued history of the causes of the First World War, from acclaimed historian and author Christopher Clark

Fritz and Tommy: Across the Barbed Wire: Peter Doyle and Robin Schäfer

I'm looking forward to reading this one, written by two respected and experienced military history researchers.

From the Amazon book description:-

Fritz and Tommy: Across the Barbed Wire takes a unique look at the experiences of the German soldier - in direct comparison with those of his British counterpart. 

The Gestapo: The Myth and Reality of Hitler's Secret Police: Frank McDonough

From the Amazon description:-
This fascinating and absorbing new book, drawing on original Gestapo files, provides a wide range of vivid and fascinating stories that explore the tragic human plight of victims of Nazi terror, and the motives of the German citizens who denounced them.
