Biographies of historical figures written for school children but interesting for those of us who never heard of them or have forgotten them. Short enough for a quick read for waiting for an appointment, etc.

A very, VERY minor point - could you add a space after the ":" following the author's name, please? That way it ensures that if we have multiple people uploading books by the same authors, they all sort correctly in our book index.


I've edited the title of this thread (and the other book) to reflect that.

Will do the space.

A question: I have a couple of books that I have downloaded and prepared whose copyrights were not renewed in the US, which is where they were published. Will I need to contact one of you to have you shift it to a US server after uploading in the event it might be copyrighted elsewhere?

The titles are Of Spies and Strategems, about the OSS in World War II and Destroyer Squadron 23, about Arleigh Burke in WWII. Neither shows the renewal at 28 years.

Yes, that's fine. Easiest way to do it is to use the "Report post" button to report your own post and ask for it to be moved to the US server - that way all the mods see it.
