- 93 Confirmed Kills
- By: Charles Henderson
- Narrated by: Kevin Foley
- Length: 10 hrs and 52 mins
There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

A must listen, A+
I was totally blown away by the story of Gunny Hathcock. The book completely rounds out his life. I felt as though I knew Carlos after listening to it. It was great to take on trips. I know of 5-6 people who have borrowed my iPod to listen to his story. I had not understood the sniper mentality until I started listening to this book and it really taught me a few things. A++

Easy Company Soldier
- The Legendary Battles of a Sergeant from WW II's 'Band of Brothers'
- By: Don Malarkey, Bob Welch
- Narrated by: John Bedford Lloyd
- Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins
Sgt. Don Malarkey takes us not only into the battles fought from Normandy to Germany, but into the heart and mind of a soldier who beat the odds to become an elite paratrooper and lost his best friend during the nightmarish engagement at Bastogne. Drafted in 1942, Malarkey arrived at Toccoa Camp in Georgia and was one of six soldiers who earned their Eagle wings and went to England in 1943 to provide ground cover for the largest amphibious military attack in history: Operation Overlord.

Really Rounds out Band of Brothers
A truly great book. One that will have you fighting and brawling with the 101st in the trenches and feeling all of their losses. Highly recommended.
