I have read the first five IIRC. All good if not brilliant.

What do you think is the best one?

Yes! An article on Patrick O'Brian would be excellent. I will put the idea forth. As for my favorite book it is almost impossible to name. If I was absolutely forced to pick one I would choose The Far Side of the World. I encourage you to keep reading through the series Wolf Tone. They just keep on getting better. Although I found his last book to be just a bit less satisfactory than the others.

Just finished "Parachute Infantry - An American Paratrooper's
Memoir of D-Day and the Fall of the Third Reich" by David Kenyon Webster. Found it a very good read. Also nice if you have seen the series "Band of Brothers"

Next will be "Black Hawk Down" by Mark Bowden. Already seen the movie and read some of his articles in the Philadelphia Enquirer, I am looking forward to this one.

I just started on "Gamas e Condes da Vidigueira - Percursos e Genealogias", in english would be something like " Gamas and the Vidigueira's Counts - Trails and Genealogy", it's about the man that discovered the nautical way around Africa, from Europe (Porugal) to India, back in the end of the XV century (1497).
There's a familiar saying in Portugal that translates "We gave new worlds to the world", and unfortunatly all that people talk about is Colombo...

Hmmm...

I started the Starfist Series by David Sherman and Dan Cragg, both Vets, USMC, and Army respectively.

I just bought Fields of Fire by James Webb (highly recommended from Making the Corps and supposedly required reading for leaders in the Marines), Fifteen Hours, A Warhammer 40,000 book, and finally We the Living by Ayn Rand (she was recommended to me by my favorite history teacher as an excellent example of individual power and philosophy).

I'm impressed with the huge variety of war books that you guys have access to. Over here and in portuguese there's very little thing...
Never heard of Ayn Rand, but if she's recomended by a history teatcher I'll try to find out something on her.
