Post Frank Adam: Segel in Flammen
I've had this book on my shelf for a while and I decided it was time I attempted it. As you can see by the title, it's in German. The last time I read a book in German was for my college German literature class (about 20 years ago :shock: ).

I've read the beginning part of the first chapter. As Mil likes to say, there's already been a bit of bang-shoot just in those few pages. The hardest thing, I find, is learning the AoS terms in German.

Word for the day: Bugwelle (f.) - bow wave

....I only did conversational German years ago and it certainly didn't include bugwelle! :lol:

I'm afraid you'll have to wait a bit. It's going to take me a long time to finish it at the pace I'm going. :lol:

Hi Manuel,

No, I haven't finished the book yet. It will take me quite a while since I have to look up all of the nautical terms. So, far I'm doing okay. :) If I get stuck I will definitely ask you to help!
