    Wanted: Volunteers for Project Delta. Will guarantee you a medal. A body bag. Or both. With this call to arms, Charlie Beckwith revolutionized American armed combat. Beckwith's acclaimed memoir tells the story of Delta Force as only its maverick creator could tell it - from the bloody baptism of Vietnam to the top-secret training grounds of North Carolina to political battles in the upper levels of the Pentagon itself. This is the heart-pounding, first-person insider's view of the missions that made Delta Force legendary.

    It was torture to stop and go to sleep. Aged as it is, it is still a very timely topic.

    With The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors and Ship of Ghosts, James D. Hornfischer created essential and enduring narratives about America’s World War II Navy, works of unique immediacy distinguished by rich portraits of ordinary men in extremis and exclusive new information. Now he does the same for the deadliest, most pivotal naval campaign of the Pacific war: Guadalcanal.

    A wonderful telling of important Navy battles in a spellbinding and captivating style. As close as I’ve ever been to really “being there” in any book, story, or movie. Simply a must read for any follower of U.S. forces in action!

  • The Only Thing Worth Dying For: How Eleven Green Berets Forged a New Afghanistan

    The Only Thing Worth Dying For chronicles the most important mission in the early days of the Global War on Terror, when the men on the ground knew little about the enemy - and their commanders in Washington knew even less. With unprecedented access to surviving members of ODA 574, key war planners, and Karzai himself, award-winning author Eric Blehm cuts through the noise of politicians and high-level military officials to narrate, for the first time, a story of uncommon bravery and terrible sacrifice.

    jrrich says: "Great story about the rise of Karzai."
    "Very well researched and written!"

  • Carnivore: A Memoir by One of the Deadliest American Soldiers of All Time

    Dillard Johnson was at the forefront of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. But surviving the enemy was only the beginning. Johnson would use the intensity, focus, and humor that kept him alive on the battlefield to fight stage three Hodgkin's Lymphoma. A man determined not to die, Johnson made a miraculous recovery - and then returned to Iraq for a second combat tour as an Army sniper. Funny and exciting, Carnivore offers fresh insight into the mind and heart of a warrior and offers a look at the lives of troops on the ground not seen before.

    Michael says: "was needing a better military read"
    "A really great read, about a real American hero!"

    Story

    One of the really great books of combat in the Iraq war. Sometime humorous, sometimes tragic, but always a great story about a real soldier's heroic actions.

    Dead Men Risen, winner of the prestigious Orwell Prize for books, is the epic story of a beleaguered British battle group fighting desperately to prevent the Taliban from seizing Afghanistan's Helmand province just as the US Marines arrive to take over. Best-selling author Toby Harnden describes how men from the coal mining valleys and slate quarry villages of Wales found themselves in the most intense combat faced by British troops for a generation.

    Story

    I was very surprised to see Britain's efforts in Afghanistan result from poor planning, understaffing, and lack of helicopter support. The Brits have always seemed to be well prepared and equipped for their military actions (Falklands excluded). To see them overstretched for lack of manpower, and forced to use IED infested roads for the lack of even basic helicopter support. One has to feel great compassion for them as they do their best despite inj
    adequate support. So many unnecessary injuries and deaths because the political party in power failed to provide adequate manpower and support. The degree to which they did succeed is testament to their pluck and pride. A very good book!
