Books for your Kindle... #1

...prompted by the post from Bob Cordery mentioning that he's just bought a Kindle (wise man .. ) it struck me that if everyone who owns one occasionally puts up a post giving links to books that might appeal to their follow war-gamers, the world would indeed be a better place.....  so in the first of what will be a fairly occasional series I offer the following possibilities....

First; I recommend Calibre [click here] for managing your Kindle library - I find it very easy to use - you can manage the device files through the normal Windows Explorer type display, but Calibre allows you to handle multiple files, from multiple sources, and liberates you from the Amazon "benign tyranny"...

So - a few suggestions to get the series started..... what else have people found.....??


  1. Get on Casemate's list, they have been sending out regular lists of eBook memoirs for as low as 0.99 USD.

  2. Andy - any idea where they are listed - looked on the UK and US websites but couldn't see anything?

  3. They are selling them through Amazon and other retailers-- check out this link.

  4. Definitely recommend Project Gutenberg; I've downloaded Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" and Kincaid's "Adventures in the Rifle Brigade in the Peninsula" as well as "Little Wars".
