Each month I highlight six books; some are from the professional reading list I was asked to put together for the Naval Special Warfare Center before I retired from the SEAL Teams and others are books I have enjoyed at various stages of my life not directly associated with my time in the military.
This month’s selections include a book on the overreach of the federal government, a work of historical fiction that will transport you behind a sniper rifle in Stalingrad 1942, a story of modern war from the streets of Mogadishu, a classic espionage thriller, a history of the Algerian War, and the book that came to define the modern techno-thriller.
Interested in the “how” and “why” behind the books that influenced me? Check out the reading list and then go back and explore past selections. You might find one that resonates.
