    Tough question. I love Gone with the Wind, but I also love the North and the South series. The civil war era fascinates me. I have always thought I would have been a great southern belle (minus the slavery part). The big gowns and all.

    I recently read A Midnight Clear by William Wharton. It was an excellent story of a World War II rifle squad and their unusual encounter with a group of German soldiers.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    I read Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman a while back. Not a bad book at all. I'd reccomend it. It was a pretty good story about slavery.

    I've always loved the book Hawaii by James Michner. Loved how the each layer of builds on the other.

    Does the Earth Children (Clan of the Cave Bear, etc...) series by Jean Aeul (Auel?) count as historical fiction?
    I love this series and almost went crazy waiting ten (yes 10) years for the latest book.
    Watch out, It's a stampede!

    I loved the North and South Trilogy by John Jakes. My favorite of all time though would be James Michener's Centennial. Battle Cry by Leon Uris would be my favorite World War II book, although Herman Wouk's War and Remberance is a close second.

    I enjoyed Centennial by James Michener.
