Books About True Adventures
Does anyone know any books documenting real, historical adventures? The only one I know is Alfred Lansing's book about Shackleton's voyage to the Antarctic, which is very good.
No. 1533 by William Cecil Clayton
I fought with Custer. First hand account of an NCO that went on the expedition with him. Very good.
White Rajas. BAP mentions. Englishman becomes king in Borneo.
