Can you give a short synopsis of those two? I'll add them to the list as soon as you do. Thanks slate.

if you're willing to deal with the long read (1000+ pages) Once An Eagle by Anton Myre is really good. Its a fictional biography of a career Army officer, following his life through WWI, WWII, China, and Vietnam

Generation Kill

One Bullet Away is the quasi-autobiography of the Capt Nathanial Fick, who commanded the unit that Wright was embeded with. Wright wrote Generation Kill.

Generation Kill is the best. Wright wrote for Rolling Stone so political correctness and such went out the window

Excellent. There isn't much that I hate more than political correctness.

House to House - David Bellavia for the current Iraq war. It was the grittiest, dirtiest, most vividly described, most realistic first hand account of any war that I have ever read.

I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with this thread as much as I and many others would like me to; it's been that way with most of the things in my life right now. I've been super busy lately, and maybe when I'm done unpacking I'll update the thread. Thank you all for your suggestions thus far.

I read The Lone Survivor and wow. Honestly, I couldn't put the book down.

OOOO and a book you should add is:

Marine Sniper-Follows Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock through his tour in 'Nam and his absolute KILLING SPREE he por took in. O M G. The best book I've ever read by far.

I'm guessing this has to do with American War books?

If not, I have a myriad of ancient Greece and Rome books to add to the list.

For now:

WWII -

June 6th, 1944: The Voices of D-Day
By Gerald Astor
On the 50th anniversary of the single greatest combined land-sea-air operation of World War II, American and British soldiers and sailors who were there tell for the first time what really happened as they braved a firestorm of Nazi shot and shell. They reveal what went wrong and why, and how they pressed through fearsome resistance.

and

A Blood-Dimmed Tide: The Battle of the Bulge By the Men Who Fought It.
By Gerald Astor
As the 50th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge approaches, this engrossing oral history--told in the words of those who were there, from the top decision-makers to footsoldiers in the trenches--addresses the still lingering controversy over who did what to whom, who performed with valor and who committed the most egregious errors.

The Lone Survivor - Marcus Luttrell
The book is about the war on terror, and based on the true story of 4 Navy SEALs who were compromised and ambushed by 100-200 Taliban, and only one lived - All were awarded the Navy Cross and one was awarded the Medal of Honor.
Thank you for the suggestion... that book was amazing. Just finished it today.
