I tend to relax with a well-written book on history. Generally, World War II or American history. I am fascinated by questions such as, how could France with arguably the largest and best equipped army (and the best tanks) in the world be defeated by Germany in 1940? Or, why did Japan declare war on the United States knowing that their war industry could never equal that of America? Or, maybe why did President James Madison want Congress to declare war on the most powerful empire on the face of the planet in 1812?
Questions like these have always intrigued me. And, since “experts” may disagree on the answers, there’s always an interesting point of view popping up. Which means a new volume on the subject. And, a new gripping read.
What’s your go to genre for a relaxing read? I’d love to hear from you.
