A Change to the Reading Area of Interest

For several years my main area of interest for casual reading has been African Safari true stories mainly in the 20th century.  The last few months I have started reading about the United States Special Forces and some other clandestine organizations.  I have read a couple documentary type books by persons involved in the early days of the Afghanistan conflict. 

The Only Thing Worth Dying For: How Eleven Green Berets Fought for a New Afghanistan (P.S.) by Eric Blehm  - Really good read

 - Good author and a good read

Jawbreaker: The Attack on Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda: A Personal Account by the CIA's Key Field Commander by Gary Berntsen and Ralph Pezzullo  - Pretty good read

If you are interested in military doings and special operations.  These are some pretty good ones covering recent times.
