Oh, cool. I just noticed this thread. Heck yes I'd love to do this. I should be reading way more and now that I'm going to be away from home this is my opportunity! Paperback: Marine! The Life of Chesty Puller by Burke Davis Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden Shooter by GySgt Jack Coughlin, Capt Casey Kuhlman, and with Donald A. Davis The Last Stand of Fox Company by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin Marine Sniper by Charles Henderson On Killing by Lt Col Dave Grossman One Bullet Away The Making of a Marine Officer by Capt Nathaniel Fick Making The Corps by Thomas E. Ricks I gave my copy of The Village to my father-in-law to try to explain to him what FID was. Hardback: The Lions of Iwo Jima by Major General Fred Haynes Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley with Ron Powers LBJ's Hired Gun by John J. Gebhart And also, if Shadowspear is still up in 500 years and this thread is still active, I've got a few dozen Battletech novels from my childhood. It'll make for good reading once we wage war with giant robots.
