I liked Generation Kill. It was a book written by a journalist assigned to an army squad in Iraq, and focuses on how our current generation (brought up in the color tv / movies / video games era) deals with war. It is quite interesting and remains 100% true to what happened to the squad.
Also, it wasn't 100% anti-war or pro-war. It was mostly "here's what happened, here's how it happened, here's how they/we dealt with it."
Another good book would be Guns, Germs, and Steel. It's a fairly famous book that tracks sociological / economic change in human populations since prehistoric times. Basically it asks the question "why did Europe advance technologically as opposed to North America / South America / Africa / Asia / Australia?" It is very well researched and is quite interesting.
