Hey, I just finished reading Delta Force by Col. Beckwith. Before DF I read Black Hawk Down. Before BHD I read about the Soviet-Afghan War.....I was wondering if there are any favorite modern war books that you guys have that might be interesting. Maybe another Spec Ops book, perhaps?
I'm really enjoying Shadow Warriors by Tom Clancy which is a non-fiction book. I particularly liked the Panamanian invasion section because it goes into the most detail. It's probably not what you're looking for in a blow by blow type of story, but it's wonderful insight into some of what the special forces goes through to do their job.
Killing pabloby Mark Bowden the life - and killing - of drug lord Pablo Escobar.
The phantom majorby virginia Cowles The story of major David Stirling and the foundation of the SAS unit during WWII. Gives a lot of insight and explanation about the mind and ways of SF and its fonding fathers.
