I subscribe to several different ebook sales notification services. One of those is My Next Read.
In the email I received from them today they noted that the ebook edition of The Coal-Scuttle Brigade by Alexander McKee is currently available from Amazon for FREE. I have downloaded it but not yet read the 152 page volume. The book was published in 2016. This book is an account of the men and ships who tackled the twice-weekly run from the North-East to the South Coast of England in WWII.
If you are a student of WWII history you should act now to add this book to your bookshelf. These sales often last only a few days, so better to act soon.
If you have an interest in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest.
- The “World War II Resources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 590 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. Included are links to many fiction and non-fiction books on WWII that I have read and reviewed. There are also links to WWII oriented podcasts.
