Montross' book is for sure a great read! It was at one time required reading for Marine officers candidates. I used it as a source for my Master thesis.

That's not a history book... but thanks for the laugh. It was a good way to start my morning.

Barbara Tuchman's "The Guns of August" and "The March Of Folly".

The Heike Monogatari

Thucydides' "History of the Peloponnesian War"

Harvard's Civil War by Richard Miller is my favorite. It is about the 20th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment that fought in the 2nd Corps during the American Civil War.

I have too many. Longknife and Sea to Shining Sea by James Alexander Thom. Six Wives of Henry VIII, I like several by Alison Weir. I also like The Killer Angels and Gods and Generals.
I have a collection of books on the druids, and ancient Rome. So I cannot just name one.

I came across the listing on amazon yesterday, and it seems that amazon itself has the book permanently (?) discounted at $9.90. "New" marketplace copies are also fairly inexpensive now.
