One Million Steps: A Marine Platoon at War (Bing West)
I am a fan of West ever since I Read No True Glory. The guy gives it to you straight with no bullshit or fluff, if you want to know about War with a Marine Platoon, read this.
I have always felt USMC FORECON has never got the credit and respect they deserve for the role they have played in the wars in A-Stan and Iraq..nice to see some Love coming their way.
Gray Work: Confessions of an American Paramilitary Spy (Jamie Smith)
For those of you who thought true espionage field-craft only got to be practiced by those “official” alphabet agencies, think again….Get ready to jump down the rabbit hole with his one, because it is a ride.
13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened at Benghazi (Mitchell Zuckoff and Annex Security Team)
I did a post on this subject as it is near and dear to my heart….Simply put, If you consider yourself an American Patriot, read this book.
Command Authority (Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney)
I am what you call a Clancy “Purist”….To me, nothing comes close to the old school, Military-Tech-Action genre that Clancy virtually created in the early eighties. Therefore, it has always been hard for me to accept any of his “newer” stuff, but this one blew me away! Talk about a book “torn right from the headlines” this is it!!
