One day I purchased A very civil war: the Swiss Sonderbund War of 1847 because of an unfamiliar feeling. I had no knowledge of the opponents, the commanders, the battles or who even won. My ignorance was truly bliss! The book was quickly read and enjoyed.
But more was needed. I look further afield than my usual haunts of Europe and North America. In South America I found The Chaco War: Bolivia and Paraguay, 1932-1935. Again momentary enjoyment led to more hunting for (relatively) obscure subjects.
In a moment of weakness I doubled back to mid-nineteenth century Europe hoping Bismarck's First War: The Campaign of Schleswig and Jutland 1864 would suffice but alas I knew in the back of my mind Bismarck always won as indeed he did.
Can my fellow LTers help this searcher for the unusual?
