I agree with younglobo....A movie about Forrest would be good! But, it neds to be done right, (in my opinion, historical fiction is hard to write and, consequently, hard  read, withought seeming corn-ball or hokie. Again, my opinion, "Never to Quit" by Bob Armistead, fit this category....a very hard to read/believe story).

On the other hand, "The Falling Hills" by Perry Lentz, was very well researched and very well written. A very good novel on the Battle of Ft. Pillow.

I'm just not a fan of historical fiction or "what if" fiction, so I read them very infrequently. Again, however, one that is well researched and well written is definately worth reading!
