Liberation of Paris

I'm a little late with this video that shows the underground bunker that was the HQ for the FFI in the final days of the German occupation.

Final Flight

If you've been to the World War II museum in New Orleans, you have seen the war birds on display in the Boeing Center. This is a time lapse video of how they were installed in their final positions.

I cannot imbed the video so the link to it is here.

Book Review - The Night Fire

"The Night Fire" is Michael Connelly's latest Bosch and Ballard mystery. Bosch's mentor from his early days has passed away and his widow gives Bosch a murder book that her husband had kept in his office. It was a cold case and it captures Bosch's imagination. While it appeared to be a drug deal gone bad, Bosch thought it look suspicious. Meanwhile Rene Ballard is called to a what appears to be an accidental death where a homeless man is killed when his portable heater causes a fire. Bosch enlists Ballard to use her LAPD connections to help with the cold case and he tries to discover the answer to why his mentor kept the murder book and Ballard defies LAPD protocol in her search for the truth about the night fire.

This story has a lot of twists and turns and will keep you engaged until the surprising finish.
