Area 187; Almost Hell by Eric Lowther.
Yes, its a zombie book, but its really a story of the survivors who get trapped inside W VA when the fedgov walls off the area where the outbreak occurs. They make a half-assed attempt at getting people to leave, then claim that the area is 'survivor free'.
A DVD makes its way out showing survivors and ...well, even though its long book and could easily have been broken into three smaller ones, its a very well-written story.
Entertaining.
Never confuse 'The will of the Majority' with 'The will of God'.

Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative,
and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want
people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Yeah...uhh. I don't have that problem, so I doubt I'll be reading that book along with you.

Just read straight through No Easy Day. Was sick at home so I decided to knock it out. Glad I did

Very interesting how close but oh so far Chuck Pfarrer got with his Seal Target Geranimo. There is a reason why the administration had everyone in DOD say it was a fabrication. Now this book comes out and I have to say, as mixed feelings as I had about OPSEC, the book set the record straight without breeching OPSEC. Fact is, the DOJ should be pursuing charges against the administration.

This book did the SOF community proud and it took the power of story telling away from the politicians for once and let the real heroes dispute the administrations lies and set the story straight.

Finally buckled down and read Atlas Shrugged. Awesome. It is a very long book, and I would get so angry during the first half that every couple hundred pages I had to set it aside and go read a Vince Flynn book, then get back to it.

Hey Irish, been super busy at work and home but I agree with you on this, I've talked to a few folks out here that were asking me about this and had some very long discussions...

A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin (2nd time). Figured I better read it again so I could see how much they leave out/change on Game of Thrones, Season 3.

Just finished "The Heights of Courage"
Avigdor Kahalani

This is the amazon write up,
"

In October 1973, the State of Israel was invaded by Egyptian and Syrian forces. Despite early losses, Israel managed to outfight its opponents. The brief and bloody Yom Kippur War stands as a unique chapter in modern military history. Fought primarily by tank units, the war became a story not only of battle strategy and tactics, but also one of human discipline, endurance and sacrifice.

While many historians have chronicled the events of the Yom Kippur War, few have been seasoned by actual combat. Avigdor Kahalani, commander of a tank battalion on the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War, describes this experience in The Heights of Courage. Beginning with a description of the initial Syrian offensive, he recounts the personal endeavors of his men, their fears and their ambitions, as well as their emotional and physical hardships. His stark account traces the efforts of the Israel Armored Corps as they struggle to overcome extreme difficulties and setbacks. The author describes their ultimate penetration into enemy territory and their approach to within forty kilometers of Damascus.
"


If you have ever wondered what it would be like in a tank battle at point blank range with the homes of your friends and family within sight of the battle,
Family members and homes that would be killed and destroyed if you failed this book is for you. A great many crunchies think being a Tanker is an easy ride and a cushy place to be in battle don't think about the fact that when you are on the battlefield you get everyones attention including the enemies and in a tank you can't hide in a ditch.

caveat emptor: I am a Tanker, I have lived in Israel and I have a good friend whose son is a commander in the IDF 7Th Armored Brigade so I am a little bias.

The 7th IDF is Israel's version of U.S. General George S. Patton 7th Army Tankers or the 3ACR. Bad ass Tankers to the core.
