But the idiots decided to make it western front only. W

Well if by western front only you mean africa and Norway, sure why not.

From the gameplay point of view, there is a lot of stuff that look really cool. But even I will buy this game, I have to admit that the politically correct stuff and the cuztomisation is bad. But I hope that, like it was said earlier, that the protest will make EA/DICE change that.

I will be buying it...

It looks like a lot of fun like BF1 was, but I will go with Post Scriptum or Hell Let Loose (and FH2  ;) ) for my authentic WW2 fix!

Same here ;)

After reading the post by torenico, I did my research and it's only rumor, but not credible one, from what I have seen.

Anyone can recommend me a good read about Sparta in specific or any other great book about the Greeks?

This one :

Since you said that multi-volumes are ok, you might want to look into Prit Buttar's works on the Eastern Front: Collision of Empires: The War on the Eastern Front in 1914, Germany Ascendant: The Eastern Front 1915, Russia's Last Gasp: The Eastern Front 1916-17 and The Splintered Empires: The Eastern Front 1917–21.

Other than that, if you want to read a single book then there's Laura Engelstein's Russia in Flames. It covers pretty much everything you asked for, starting at 1904, but is mostly focused on the Russian Revolution and the Civil War, which it covers in great detail.

If you are interested mostly in the military history of the Great War, go for Buttar's books. If your interest is centered on the Civil War, then go for Engelstein's. Or both, if you have the time/money/willpower.

Does anyone have some fiction reading recommendations? I've been reading a lot of history lately, and would like to take a break, but I don't know where to start.  :P

Thank you. They look nice (they are in my wishlist), but if some people have other suggestion it will be nice.

I have another question for you.

I'm looking, this time, for a synthesis on the eastern front during ww1. But I search for one that talk of the origins of the russian in that war until the the end of the Polish–Soviet War. So I want one that cover the russian revolution and the allied intervention too. It can be a multiple volume book too.

I'd be interested in what he has to say. He is very Foucauldian, isn't he?

Yeah and like we say in french Il est lourd (it's boring). I'm happy with having read that book, but is rant against sociology and his understanding of science are not good. But everything else about history is common sens in that discipline so I agreed with him without problem.

Last year I had to go back to school, so I didn't have the to read. So I read something like 13 books.

But I hope that in 2017 I will be able to read at least 20 or 30 book.

So my first book in 2017 was The day the revolution began: https://www.amazon.com/Day-Revolution-Began-Reconsidering-Crucifixion/dp/0062334387/?tag=thegospcoal-20

It's a book of historical theology, what I mean by that is that explain how the first christian saw Jesus and what they belief about revolution.

Now I am re-reading Battlecry of freedom by James McPherson. I had read it, like 6 years ago in french and now I'm reading it in English.

After that I will go with Comment on écrit l'histoire by Paul Veyne. It's a book about historical epistemology. After that I don't really know, maybe the arthurian Legend (the original one) or maybe something else. I will see.
