Reading for War

CO 1 Military Police Battalion's Reading and Resource List

By Nathan Pierpoint February 13, 2019


The Cove's library of role-specific Reading and Resource lists continues to build.

Here CO 1 Military Police Battalion shares the list he has given to his soldiers and officers for 2017.  He's sought to provide something for everyone ... from deep theory on the nature of war, right down to books like Black Hearts and Generation Kill that take you into recent conflicts.

Have you got a reading and resource list you want us to consider?  Then hit contribute and let us know.  Also, if you've read any of these books and want to discuss them with your peers, drop us a line.  We have lots of ways to create networked discussion groups at the Cove.
