Im looking to put together a list of books to read in the few months between now and bootcamp. I do have a copy of the commandants reading list, and ive gotten a few on the list but some of the titles are obscure and almost impossible to find.

I just finished bing west's "The Village" and Nathaniel Fick's "One Bullet Away" and picked up another one of wests, No True Glory, Today.

So i wanted to ask what some of you guys personally feel are good books to check out.

My personal favorite is "Fields of Fire" by James Webb. It's an excellent book.

Also check out this list from Sgt. Grit's page, it might help:
