"Each Marine is required to read the Commandant's choice "First to Fight" by LtGen (Ret) V. Krulak. Each Marine shall also read a minimum of one book per grade per year." (ALMAR 027/11 effective 8 July 2011)With Ender's Game on it. Or they did when my informant was required to read from that list which is what made me speed over there to see it.
I see Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein.
And The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara which Scott just picked as our next book at A Good Story is Hard to Find.
I've gotta give them props for an interesting list.
I thought all the books would be like this fine selection for Lieutenant Colonels: At the Water's Edge: Defending Against the Modern Amphibious Assault by Theodore Gatchel.
Not that there's anything wrong with that. I want them to be able to defend against the modern amphibious assault.
You can pick up a pdf of the list at the site.
Thanks to one of my favorite Marines, Frank at Why I am Catholic, for the tip on this list.
He provides the original list which had Ender's Game on it. And a bunch of great looking books.
