I plan on first procuring, as soon as possible, the book published by the Naval Institute Press, called, "By Order of The Kaiser: Otto von Diederichs, and the Rise of the Imperial German Navy, 1865-1902". There is also a 15(?) volume Encyclpaedia on the Indian Army, but the first three volumes is concerned with ancient Indian warfare. I would really like to see the diplomatic outlook of the Indian Army, and I would like to purchase the 15th(?) volume of the series. I am a patriot, because of the Indian Army. If I could, I would fight, before the Indian Army did. I would like the Army to commission a book on the Army Chiefs of Staff. and keep updating it. I have decided to purchase another book on an iconic personality of the Indian Air Force, Marshal of the Air Force Arjan Singh. In fact, I have set my sight on thirteen volumes of books, which I plan to purchase.

That's a solid list.

Like many people, my list remains long to.

I am currently finishing David Killcullen's "Accidental Guerrilla." After that, I really want to read "Manhunt" (about John Wilkes Booth). Then, I have a desire to read "The Influence of Sea Power on History." Lastly, I can't remember the name, but there is a new book about Theodore Roosevelt and his foreign policy with the navy. Throughout this list, I'll read up on current events and read any interesting reports released by RAND, CFR, CSIS, or NCAS.

I am currently reading, a book called 'Writer at War' compiled by Antony Beevor, on the diaries of Valery Grossman, the famous novelist/war journalist of the Soviet Union. The experience while reading this book, is priceless.
