    Must read books

    Just finished reading 'Fearless'. Its a biography of a Navy Seal DEVGRU member.

    Amazon.com: Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown (9780307730695): Eric Blehm: Books

    This really is a story that needs to be told, it's incredible what this guy overcame to get to the pinnacle of the Navy operators.

    Even if you don't have an interest in the military it is worth a read.

    Also read the new Lee Child boo 'Personal'. It was very average.

    Anyone else got some recommendations?

    Shadow Warrior by David Everett is a good book, I enjoy all Military books fact and fiction. and The Circuit by Bob Shepard is also a very good read. also Eye of the storm by Peter Ratcliffe

    Not military/firearm related at all but I started reading "Gone Girl" and it kept me up all night and a book hasn't done that to me in years

    I don't wanna see the movie and if any of yas have had psycho exes it may not be a fun read but it's well done

    If you read Chickenhawk you should probably read ' Year of the Horse" by Kenneth Mertel. 1965 Vietnam chopper pilots .

    I have got too many to list, but Antony Beevor - Stalingrad. Plus, Gideon's Spies - The secret history of the Mossad by Gordon Thomas. Both are freaking awesome for totally different reasons

    Hawks by Andrew grant. Fictitious story of a guy in the beginning of the venison business. Work hard party hard, shit run of luck with relationships and a bloody sad ending, seemed to get something in my eye near the end!
