Marine Sniper - by Hathcock is a MUST READ for everyone.

The book I mentioned above is SHOOTER by Gunnery Sgt. Coughlin and Capt Casey Kuhlman. * I recommend this book as well.

"Unintended Cosequences" is awesome! Also, "In the Company of Heroes" by Michael Durant. There are some things about his capture that he tells for the first time. Excellent read!

How was Hunt for Bin Laden?
VERY GOOD!

Keep in mind that it covers the early part of the war, immediately after 9/11.

The Man Eaters of Tsavo was the first book I read as a child. You should read Ghosts of Tsavo by Phillip Caputo, which is a modern study of the lions in Patterson's book, and the present condition of Tsavo lions. Great read.

In the Company of Heroes was excellent.

Black Hawk Down of course, and I want to read Killing Pablo by Bowden as well.

Also, Aukai Collin's My Jihad is extremely interesting. He was a mod on AR15.com for a short while. He's now pulling time in a Mexican Federal prison.


I picked up Charlie Wilson's War by George Crile today. It supposedly tells the story of how Wilson and the CIA helped get funding to the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets.

I've read Capstick and also The Lions of Tsavo, and good stuff all around.
