ROMMEL and his Art of War by Field Marshal Erwin Rommel edited by Dr John Pimlott is the best book I have read about this

I just read a great military book(IMO) called Generation Kill it's about the first recon marines and their path through iraq, it was written by a reporter embedded with them and has some really good dialogue between the marines, I highly reccomend it.

"Blood on the Risers" - John Leppelman

It's a soldier's memoir about his three tours in Vietnam. He was a paratrooper in the 173d Airborne Brigade, an Army Seaman on an LCU during the battle of Hue, and a LERP.

that sounds awesome, I'm really facinated by recon units, so I'll have to check that out. (btw, its LRRP )

For a WWII genre book I enjoyed the book called "If You Survive" by George Wilson. It covers an the time period from Normandy to the Battle of the Bulge to the end of WWII and is a true story of an American Infantry officer of the 4th Infantry Division. Anyone else had the chance to read this book?
