Summer of My German Soldier (Puffin Modern Classics)
Intriguing and Heartbreaking
This classic novel about a young girl's pain and heartbreak continues to reach out to readers of all ages, after 35+ years. Greene's story of impossible love, between a Jewish girl in the American South and a Nazi prisoner-of-war, endures because of its timeless theme. Patty's touching story crosses all barriers. Although this story was intended for middle-grade readers, it is equally ...
The Good Soldiers
The book took me much longer to get through than I anticipated because it absolutely weighed heavy on the heart. Finkel was an embedded reporter with a batallion in Iraq in 2007. This is their story and it is a difficult one but a worthy read. If there was a mandatory reading list for Americans, The Good Soldiers should be on it. The writing is simple. As a matter of fact, itfs almost too ...
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
An intense read!
What a story! Very emotionally charged! You may feel sad but it's worth it to plug on and finish the book. Highly recommend it! Looking for a great summer reading book for your child? Here it is-Smitty's Cave Adventures
We Were Soldiers Once...and Young: Ia Drang - the Battle That Changed the War in Vietnam
Harold G. Moore
Joseph L. Galloway
This book is amazing, well told story from a sincere Leader. If you are looking for a good example of a leader, Lt. Col. Moore is it.
Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan
This book was great. I have a friend in the Special Forces. We always ask him what he is doing. He said this book explains what they do fairly well. I recommend it.
Night Soldiers: A Novel
Random House Trade Paperbacks
Simply brilliant !
In my opinion this book is simply brilliant, by far the best, most convoluted and broadest in scope of any of the Furst books. It is the longest of Furst's work but also covers the longest span of time, 1934 to 1945, and an almost full circle (or figure eight) of European landscape taking the young protagonist from his native Bulgaria through Russia, Spain, France, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, ...
Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission
One to Remember
Before you start reading this book make sure you are free for the next few days. Once you start you will not stop until it's finished. The author somehow is able to trap so many emotions around war into each few pages. And the story is believable, yet incredible. Bringing all of these pieces together is rarely this well done. Overall the story and writing are really way above other books in ...
We were Soldiers Once...And Young: Ia Drang--The Battle That Changed The War In Vietnam
Harold G. Moore
Joseph L. Galloway
I bought this book for my husband and he can't put it down. In fact, he often will describe to me the page turning events as they unfold. It is beautifully written even down to the last gory detail (which there are many of). We have owned the movie since it came out and since my husband's been reading this book he will often go and watch the movie "again". For all history buffs, this book is a ...
Soldier's Heart : Being the Story of the Enlistment and Due Service of the Boy Charley Goddard in the First ...
their blood looked like red clouds
Soldier's Heart, by Gary Paulsen, is a fantastic book for teens. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a great gory, action thriller. I think that if I had to rate this book from 1-10, it's a qualified 20. The protagonist is Charley Goddard, a fifteen year old child that goes to war, lies about his age and says he is eighteen. Once he gets qualified for the Civil War all he is rationed to ...
Look at this young ensign, how fine he looks with his banner and his sword. Wouldn't you like to be a soldier? to fight for your country? This soldier has got leave of absence for a few days, and has joined a party of hunters. Here he is with his horn, whip, cap, and dog.
The Good Soldier: A Tale of Passion (Oxford World's Classics)
Ford Madox Ford
Oxford University Press, USA
This is a charming and wonderful copy!
I wanted to report that this edition is not the poor one that some of the reviewers were complaining about. This is a charming and wonderful copy of the book, published just in the summer of 2009, so feel confident to order it. I did and was very happy with it, a beautiful cover. Of course the book is as good today as it was when first published, but other reviewers have done a great job on ...
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
John le Carre
A Cold War Thriller
Smiley's People and Tinker, Tailor are my favorite spy thrillers. No one in the genre develops characters and twists and turns of plot like Le Carre. I never thought Le Carre's stories after the Smiley saga were as good, but these two I read over and over. My hope is they will become available for the Kindle, at which time they will become part of my permanent library. I highly recommend them ...
The Forgotten Soldier
Potomac Books Inc.
Excellent, captivating book
Forget the long reviews, although interesting to read other's thoughts on my favorite book. Quite simply, this is the best book I have ever read.
Gone For Soldiers
Gone for Soldiers
Gone For Soldiers Great book and a must read for everyone to gain a better grasp on what made our country what it is today. Helps in understanding of what lead up to the Civil War as well... Both Jeff and His father are masters at their trade..
The Good Soldier Svejk: and His Fortunes in the World War (Penguin Classics)
Don't worry! Be happy!
Svejk is one of the greatest creations of world literature of all times. He deserves to be mentioned next to Don Qixote and Robinson Crusoe. Maybe a comparison to Grimmelshausen's Simplizius comes closer to a characterization of the 'good soldier'. This edition is the most recent and seemingly acceptable version in the English language (though one reviewer complains about the small print), but ...
In the Company of Soldiers: A Chronicle of Combat
A study in leadership
Rick Atkinson captures the high level leadership of our Army prior to and during Desert Storm. He is present during decision making conferences and provides an insight into the high level officers and how they arrived at these decisions. He gets as close to MG Petrause (sp) as anyone has been and gives us a private look at his dispare and joys during this brief war. Atkinson portrays MG ...
A Soldier of the Great War
The best book I've ever read
This is without question, the very best book I've ever read. An Italian attorney at 75 leaves Rome in the mid 1960s, and the story of his life comes out as he makes his way north to visit his daughter. It is literary, poetic, filled with action and compelling people and completely believable circumstances.
One of my all-time favorites.
"Soldier Boys" is an incredible book. I loved it from the moment I first bought it, at a middle school book fair in 2003. In retrospect, it has occurred to me that such a book as this may not be but so appropriate for middle schoolers, but I wouldn't worry. I read it in middle school and I turned out fine. Anyway. "Soldier Boys" is 230 pages long, written by Dean Hughes, and first published in ...
Chosen Soldier: The Making of a Special Forces Warrior
Three Rivers Press
It does not matter if you are a future cantidate for SFAS or just someone who is looking for a well told description about a fascinating story, this book is definately for you. It is very well written and concise. The author speaks from a point of understanding and it shows. Reading this book will give you a very good look into the selection process and training of U.S. Army SF soldiers. I ...
We Are Soldiers Still: A Journey Back to the Battlefields of Vietnam

This is an awesome story of some very brave men. The battle is blow by blow between 400 American warriors and more than 2000 North Vietnamese Army Regulars. After 3 days of battle and many many lives wasted the warriors of the 7th Cavalry along with 5th Cavalry reinforcements walked away from what would be known as the first major battle of the Vietnam War.
