Lets see Stephen Ambrose is my favourite history writer I just finished "Americans at war" today couldn't put it down its a series of essays or lessons if you will. But I am bias cause i enjoy all his books. All time though if you will allow it would be "The Illiad" thats goin way back but that book i read in junior high and high school and something about it always got me goin so much more vivid and interesting than television.
I've not been disappointed by Ambrose either...

I would recommend the late Col. David Hackworth's "Steal My Soldiers' Hearts", which is his story of transforming one of his units in 'Nam from one of the worst into one of the best.

Right now I'm reading an analysis of Robert E. Lee's Generalship during CW... not entirely complimentary, but not entirely negative either.

Flush Decks and Four Pipers by John Alden. Its pretty old probably out of print but its a great book about the old WW1 "four pipe" Destroyers that we gave to Britain as part of the lend lease program. It follows them through their demise with some great stories of their exploits.

any body read "a narrative of a revolutionary war soldier" by joseph martin? its a great book about the revolutionary war, but told from a privates point of view. I think hearing about that war from someone else's perspective other than all the famous generals. anyone whos read it want to discuss?
