My AIT reading list

I’m keeping a log of books that I finish while here at Ft. Huachuca.

First week: Robert Heinlein’s classic and controversial book, Starship Troopers. Heinlein was a Navy Officer so he understood the ins-and-outs of military life. This book may have more action, wise philosophy and political insight than any book ever published. So anyone who says Sci-Fi is shallow, must not have read this. The kicker is that it was written in 1959, for adolescents, and it holds its own against the best military Sci-Fi today.

Second week: I’ve got two going now. Ralph Peter’s, Wars of Faith and Blood, a collection of his articles written from early 2006 through 2007. Also, Blackhawk Down by Mark Bowden, chronicling the true story of two Blackhawk helicopters shot down in Somalia in 1993 during UN attempts to relieve the suffering caused by civil war. The book set the pace for Bowden’s future as an award-winning writer.
