One thing I like is a really good audio book, and I get all of my audio books at Audible. As a listener of the podcast you can go http://www.audibletrial.com/amhpodcast and get a Free 30 Day Audible Trial that includes 2 audiobooks! They’ve got a great selection of military history books. For example — in prepping for the Civil War, I’ve been listening to The Civil War — The War That Divided the States by Lance T Stewart and The United States Colored Troops, by Charles River Editors, which is a history of African American troops during the Civil War. Make sure you check out audible today — http://www.audibletrial.com/amhpodcast
