A strategic warfare reading list (Sean O'Connor's blog)An interesting collection from a Jane's specialist on strategic warfare and air defense. Not surprisingly, it includes a few books by Richard Rhodes. The comments on the post have a few interesting papers also.
Combat Shooting and Tactics recommended reading list (Combat Shooting and Tactics)Combat Shooting and Tactics is a LE training outfit in Texas. Their reading list features a couple of books by Dave Grossman, as well as some other classics. "Equal or Greater Force" by Kit Cessna is a new one to me; looks interesting!
Mountain Tactical reading list (Mountain Tactical)Mountain Tactical is Rob Shaul's training outfit and his reading list has a bunch of good suggestions. Many of his military history selections (The Savage Wars of Peace among them) show up on lists here. The "performance psychology" list has some interesting entries too. A solid selection all around!

The Generals: American Military Command from World War II to Today
A very good read on an interesting topic. The book traces how General Marshall's influence in tge training and selection of officers lead to general officers who excelled in tactics but could not operate strategically.

Easily readable, very superficial and not very interesting as it leaves out the most intetesting and controversial topics of the Iraq invasion when Franks did not live up to expectations.
