Reading List

Blog reader Bob R. asked for a list of books I recommend reading – here are a few.

- Shooting to Live by Fairbairn/Sykes
- The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker
- A Rifleman Went To War by Herbert McBride
- Ordnance Went Up Front by Roy Dunlap
- The Bullet’s Flight From Powder to Target by Mann
- Infantry Attacks by Rommel
- Seamanship and Small Boat Handling by Chapman
- The Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O’Brian (except for the ones where Aubrey is on shore because they’re boring and even harder to read)
- Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
- Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
- Starship Troopers by Heinlein
