Top Five Military Non Fiction books - Part II

Read the first post about the interesting military non-fiction books here

Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War
Black Hawk Down book, books,
Black Hawk Down
Taking you into 1993 firefight in Mogadishu, Somalia, this book is my all time favorite. Showing you the courage, tactics, planning needed to undertake a mission, making you feel the loss of brother-in-arms and connecting you to the thoughts of your comrade on death bed in hostile area, this books gives you an overall picture of what happened on that god dammed day.

To add more, we have soldiers, kids, Somalians and women dead, injured and the entire book ends in happy note viz the war prisoner (or hostage) is released and taken back to home.
Generation Kill

When you are a journalist, in war zone seeing action for the first time among brave, courageous, well trained elite Marines of the first Recon and after seeing a bloody all day engagement, you too are welcomed into the ranks of marines and given a weapon. Imagine how well you would perform and to what extent the book takes you into battle.
Generation Kill, Evan Wright
Generation Kill
All you get to see is, frequent action, madness of the command center on the top, battle hardened men, discipline, fervor, call of duty, blood and and and Corporal Trombley, Captain America (swaggering out of control commander), Sergent Colbert (icy professional)
