I haven't read that one yet, but I'll add it to the list of must-reads. That whole topic is is interesting, and it shines a light on current events.

One that I'd recommend back to you is "On Killing" by Dave Grossman. It's a classic that looks at how humans overcame their natural instinct (or not) to avoid harming others during intense encounters. It doesn't glorify violence or anything, it looks at the psychology behind these things and how they apply to today's issues.(less)

3 Common Weapons Mistakes Writers Make – And How to Fix Them
