books about: wars
Finally a book about the soldiers not the greater war and it's politics
First and foremost every reader must know that this book is a GREAT book about the soldiers themselves. If you are interested in a book outlining the greater war and it's socioeconomic and international affairs impact you can grab anyone of the thousands available here on Amazon. However, if you want to read about a group of modern warriors stripped of the advantages their modern army affords ...

The Art Of War: The Art Of War: Sun Tzu
#18 Know your enemy!
This book and its tactics have been used by every socialist including Obama to defeat you even though your ideas were much better.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #2: Skyborn
Del Rey, 2009
Don't Waste your time
Like others have said this is not really a novel, it is part of a short story. It could have been a great story, but there is not enough there to tell. No character development, interesting action, or anything of worth. It may be free but don't get it anyway.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1: Precipice
hipp! hipp! hooray!
does john jackson miller have a limo or something? he may not make lots or any money off of this book,but he deserves five stars a two thumbs up AND a LIMOUSINE
Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
Atlantic Monthly Press
Builds Slowly to Amazing Climax
I began this book a bit daunted by its 565 pages plus notes, I ended wishing the book had gone on for another 100 pages. At a base level, this book follows the exploits of Second Lieutenant Waino Mellas and the soldiers in his platoon and company during the Vietnam War. The beginning of the book quickly gets the reader acclimated with the wet, nasty conditions soldiers faced during the ...
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
Three Rivers Press
Incredible zombie book!
I really enjoyed this book. If you are a fan of zombies this is totally for you. I'm truly amazed at the quality of Mr. Brooks' writing from so many different perspectives. A very cool story.
The War of the Worlds
H. G. Wells
World Library Classics

The Martians, not even perceiving humans to be anything other than animals, decide that it is time to seize this lush, young planet. Landing in several locations in southeastern England they begin their conquest of the planet. Can man, with his most advanced technology hope to stop the Martians with their ...
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #3: Paragon
Great read, better then the first two. In most of the Star Wars books the sith are just glanced over (if talked about at all), I like getting to know them better. Kind of like getting to know the stormtroopers better in the Star Wars Republic Commando books.
Kitty Goes to War (Kitty Norville, Book 8)
"Kitty Goes to War" has cemented the fact that this series deserves a spot in my top five series. It may be closer to one or two actually. After the first book, I wasn't even sure I wanted to continue on because Kitty was a weak character who let people run all over her. Now I see that it was probably Vaughn's intention all along to show readers how far Kitty could grow and change. She is now ...
Black Powder War (Temeraire, Book 3)
Good story this time, not just characters
Naomi Novic is excellent at creating believable, breathing, and entertaining characters. For me, this is one of the biggest draws of her books. With Temeraire,Lawrence, and his crew, as well as all the side characters, Novic creates a world I want to visit and never leave. This fact saved Throne of Jade, where its plot failed to entice. In Black Powder War, however, Novic finds her stride. ...
Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September ...
Ghost wars review
An extremely well written book detailing the Cia's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan from the Soviet Invasion to September 2001. Well researched and intense.
Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Allies
Another Great read
Great Series I think a little more action would be great and is much needed in this series but over all very good
The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles
Grand Central Publishing
A Must for all writers or anyone struggling with creative resistance
"The War of Art" could be subtitled the Book of Common Prayer for Procrastinators (especially writers). It has a permanent place on my nightstand, though it sometimes migrates to my desk and has even accompanied me on vacations and writers' retreats. Steven Pressfield tells it like it is when it comes to the internal battles that take place inside the will and heart of the creative person, and ...
LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary
My 5 year old son is really into Lego Star Wars right now and this book is the perfect complement to his obsession. He spends a lot of time looking through it, and we read pages from it every night.
The Wednesday Wars
Gary D. Schmidt
This book was awesome. I thought it was pretty cool. Even though I didn't buy it in stores, I got it for getting a lot of AR points. This is what it is about. Holling Hoodhood is a kid that goes to church and is a 7th grader. He thinks his teacher hates his guts. So he askes his mom, "Do you think she hates my guts" and she said "No, honey" His dad said the same thing. No. So he asked his ...
The 33 Strategies of War (Joost Elffers Books)
I bought this book for my 16 year old son. He read the whole book and did a report on it for school. He got an A! Good learning experience.
The Lemonade War
Great Cross Curricular Book
This would be a great book for cross curricular work in math and literature in upper elementary classrooms. A fun read with lots of great material to work with.
Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Abyss
Fate of the Jedi is good reading
While this is not one of the best series in my un-asked-for-opinion, I still am happy to read them.
War and Peace (Vintage Classics)
So, Like, I Needed Some Light Summer Reading for the Beach
I was going to Cabo on Spring Break with my BFFs and needed something to keep me totally occupied while I work on my tan. Plus, I don't think they even get MTV in Mexico so I couldn't watch The Hills or Laguna Beach or whatever. "Russian Literature?" my ex-friend asked. "If you can't handle me reading 1296 pages about the Napoleonic invasion of Austria in 1805 while on vaycay you can take ...
