Reader M.C. suggested Wanat: Combat Action in Afghanistan by the US Army Combat Studies Institute. “This really is a book loaded with information that every soldier or citizen soldier should embrace. The ‘lessons learned’ commentary is worth much more than the price of the book.”

Most people have seen the movie The Eagle Has Landed. But I highly recommend you actually read The book by Jack Higgins. Follow that up with the aftermath, The Eagle Has Flown. I so wish both would be remade into films. Unlike British claims, German troops did land on their soil. Luckily for the Brits they were honorable warriors. – DMS

Reader S.B. writes in: I found a very interesting book that I believe both you and your readers would enjoy. It’s an analysis of Biblical prophesy written by a former Palestinian terrorist converted to Christianity that is written for Americans/Westerners from a Middle Eastern viewpoint. I have great difficulty finding fault with the main points of his presentation, and I have found that his perspective brings several controversial passages into new focus. Highly recommended. God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the Bible.

SurvivalBlog reader J.H. suggest these books, based on true stories of incredible survival skills:
Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing (ship stranded in Antarctica)
Undaunted Courageby Stephen E. Ambrose (book about Lewis & Clark)
It’s hard to imagine how tough these people were.
