Bratwurst is amazing, my fave sausage of all time. I love my 'Bratwurst und frites mit mayo, bitte'. If I lived in Germany I'd be 50 pounds heavier, too many fine pork products and too much superb beer.

I did go ahead and order a copy of this book, as well as the complete set of 'By the Sword Divided' - they should be here any day.

Hi gang I'm prepared to be rapidly shot down for this but I am currently writing an ECW novel if anyone would be interested on having a look. I'm at first draft stage so its unpolished but your criticisms are stuff I'm already pretty aware of so if anyone wants to have a read I can email the first chapter. IM me if you want a look (or a laugh!)
not to into this novel now that ive read a hundred or so pages but im really digging Nicholas carters shadow on the crown series, managed to find four of the series used on thriftbooks.com for a couple bucks a piece. so far really decent battle scenes and the writer is a member of sealed knot if im right. i recommend it for a fun read. not sure how historically acurate it is, he claims to keep to history as much as possible and admits to filling in gaps with fiction.
