message 11: by chris (new)

chris though bravo two zero is a good book, it seems a little too surreal to be true. from a military perspective i'd say that the SAS are good at what they do, but they're also a bit proud, afterall, they have all the publicity rather than S019, SBS and other branches of UKSF have...

Chrissom The One that Got Away: My SAS Mission behind Enemy Lines

If you liked Bravo Two Zero you should read The One That Got Away. It is the story of Chris Ryan, The only one in Bravo Two Zero that evaded capture. Great read.

Regulo Jr. Desperate Lands The War on Terror Through the Eyes of a Special Forces Soldier by Regulo Zapata Jr.
Regulo Zapata Jr.
Desperate Lands The War on Terror Through the Eyes of a Special Forces Soldier

DESPERATE LANDS is the unprecedented true story of U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers and the missions they have carried out while fighting the war on terror in Horn of Africa and in Afghanistan.

The book is unique and timely, in that it tells the compelling story of our nation's struggle and of its soldiers fighting a new and different war never fought before-a Global War on Terror.

I recommend the book to anyone who is interested on what Special Forces soldiers were doing in the war in Africa & Afghanistan.

A perspective view of a lower enlisted soldiers true experience in the war. A MUST Read!

I Thank You For Your Troop Support!

Becky Downey Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission This tale of the prisoners of the Baatan Death March and their rescue by the Army Rangers is amazing. It should be made into a movie.


message 6: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Some of these books are not by soldiers.

Chrissom wrote: "Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War"

I was warned by Air Force Academy parents NOT to read this one. I am curious but .........


message 4: by Michele (new)

Michele There seems to be a bunch of fiction on here as well as books not by soldiers.


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I removed War (not by soldier) and Matterhorn (fiction). I'm sure many more need to be deleted.


message 2: by Michele (last edited Jul 30, 2017 05:16PM) (new)

Michele #231 and #232 (Invasion and Fallen Angles) are both historical fiction. So is #200, Wild life.


message 1: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed Black Hawk Down. Author is not a soldier.
