    I got a nice pair of Tiger books just before I went into the hospital. Tried to read them there with no success. Got them at a yard sale. Tiger I on the Eastern Front and Tiger I on the Western Front by Jean Restayn

    They are good reads Aragorn I have both of those and a fair few others also another top one is "Sledgehammers" By Wilbeck about combat tactics of the Tigers the flaws and weaknesses.
    From Sledgehammers ~ On the eastern front they used them to clear anti personnel minefields with the resultant track damage rendering units U/S unbelievable how desperate were they !

    Someday, you're gonna have to post some pix of your library! I've gotten several good hints from your reading list...

    Old pics of books

    These pics are about 4 ~ 5 years old the shelves now are even more crammed to the point I have had to move most of my H/C hunting books like Capstick, Ruak, Corbett, Bell, Elmer Keith along with my Ballistic books by Mann, Nosler, Litz etc into another book case in our lounge room which the wife is none to happy about. I also have about 10 large Styrofoam coolers sealed with napthlene flakes inside stored in my shed.

    Pic # 1 ~ WWI titles bottom shelf cut off but more of the same most are where I can 1st Ed's H/C's I have 2 sets of the Bean series the one pictured is a shelf dweller 12 volume maroon set mid pic left side, here's a tidbit about their colour it was meant to represent the colour of dried blood such was the bloodshed of WWI, it's the full account of the A.I.F in WWI and took C.E.W Bean 23 years to complete.

    Pic # 2 ~ WWII same again but indispersed with S/C's even some of the S/C's are expensive to find.

    I discovered I have the first two volumes also but in paperback so I'll be waiting a while.

    My library is in every room of my house except the kitchen, the bathroom and my daughter's bedroom. Ran out of bookshelves a long time ago and have been stacking them on the floor for several years. Cant use my den for this reason. I tend to pick up a half dozen a week in yard sale season between yard sales and a used book store in town. I've been collecting books since I was 10 when my uncle started buying them for me.

    Aragorn you may have what I reckon I have bibliaphobia if I am not buying a book every other day I feel left out I then frequent the 2nd hand book shops and antique stores for that find which has only happened once, the right books at the right price it was the Bean series been on their shelf for 2 days got it for $400 which works out to $33.33 per volume, check out the prices they are asking for just Volume XII the photographic record.
