A Look Back at ‘John’s Notes’ for June 2019

I have been seeing other Bloggers post a monthly review of what they have posted. I thought that I would give that a try. This is my first monthly summary and I will see how you, my readers react to it. You may see some posts listed more than once when they fit into multiple categories. 

If you have an opinion one way or the other about my monthly summary, please give me your feedback.

What I’ve read and reviewed:

Believe it or not, publishing book reviews was how I started Blogging. My first review appeared in Spring 2014. Since then I have been able to complete more than 100 books each year and write a review of each. 

  1. Book Review: “Fighting the People’s War: The British and Commonwealth Armies and the Second World War”
  2. Book Review: “The Atlantis Deception”
  3. Book Review: “Conspiracy of Lies”
  4. Book Review: “The Oppressed”
  5. Book Review: “The Darkest Year: The American Home Front 1941-1942”
  6. Book Review: “Darkness” 

The Mac and iOS

The second area I began posting about was Mac and iOS devices. I have posted a number of articles over the years. I also began a couple of years ago to publish a few Mac related Product Announcements. I have always felt that many simply don’t realize the breadth of the OS X software library.

Related to WWII:

I have always been interested in the WWII period of history. In the past year or so I have “raised the bar” so to speak and have begun to read, watch and visit WWII related sites. 

If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest. 

The  World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 320 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.

The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.

The “About WWII” page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
