Stories that Make the World, which delved into the origins of the world as told since the beginning of time. Whether you believe the stories or not isn't the point. The compelling aspect of the whole book is that you get to glimpse how this tribe ties the landscape into their oral tradition. These stories are told as the listeners actively or retrospectively look upon the landscape. The land itself is how these stories are stored and recounted for generation after generation.

Wow, so theres an unqualified philosophy lesson for you! Anyway....
Hell's Highway and A Bridge Too Far. I found it difficult to remember where certain units were positioned and how they moved. So I set up a Google Earth file with all of the individual pins and notes.
Since then I have used Google Earth to map out most of my history and topics of interest. I thought that perhaps people might find them useful too for either wargaming or academic projects. So, as I complete these files, I will post them here for people to download and use. Feel free to let me know of any inaccuracies and I'll see to getting them fixed.
So here's my first one on the Oosterbeek Perimeter during Operation Market Garden, September 1944. I have not touched this file in years, and I apologize that its not as complete as it could be. I'm currently working on one for 'ghost planes' of the Sahara, as I've recently been inspired by the sands of the deep desert! Hopefully this one will be a bit more comprehensive and interesting!
Thanks for reading and go download Google Earth!
Also, you really should read Dr. Frey's Stories that Make the World if you are interested!
