No problem, man. As for the books: Fick's gives you the perspective of a military commander i.e. tactics, issues, responsabilities. Wright's is more about the individuals involved, the emotions, personalities, and the affect the war has on them. They really do compliment each other in a great way. There were parts that were gripping, on the edge of your seat type material. There were parts that had me laughing out loud. There were also parts that drew tears. This is in both books. Can't recommend them enough. Drop you a line in a couple of days.
