Final chapter

Author and professor Stephen Ambrose died this morning. I greatly enjoyed most of his books I read, including those parts that were overly borrowed from others. Ironically, the book for which he won the Pulitzer, D-Day, was not among my favorites. Citizen Soldier and Undaunted Courage, on the other hand, were both compelling odyssey tales that appealed to me, not only as a history buff, but to my enjoyment of great adventures laced with mystery and overwhelming challenge.
