    I just finished a book called First In. It is about the CIA going into Afghanistan 9 days after 9-11 and spearheading the war on terrorism. I highly recommend it!

            Read the first 4 and lost interest. They are all parallel "fictional" stories laced with facts and full of colorful language. Not bad at all, just too similar to each other. The first is a definate must read though.

              Its pretty good. It loses steam around the 3/4 mark, but all in all, it's a good read. It's mainly about him being corrupt. His move back into being clean was all of 20 pages. Still, it's a fun read.

              "Blue Blood" by Edward Conlon is a great book. I'm about halfway done and it's been pretty good. I expected a hard read, being that he graduated from Harvard, but it's been the opposite.

                David Grossmans On Killing was an interesting read. Not interesting to read per se but the subject matter and conclusions were enlightening.

                        The grass crown is the first in a series of the last days of the Republic. Primarily it deals with Lucius Sulla and Gaius Marius and their ties to the Julii family, and continues through five books leading to Augustus being crowned emperor. The books are fictional but based on historical fact, the fiction being the thought processes of the characters in the books. As a bit of useless trivia, The grass crown was the highest award that could be given to a Roman soldier. The crown was woven from the grass on the battlefield by fellow soldiers and given to the recipient. To be awarded a GC, you had to literaly save the army from destruction. When caesar became dictator, he passed a law that anyone awarded a grass crown would be given a seat in the senate and could wear his award. Consider it like our medal of honor, magnified by a factor of ten. Colleen McCullough is the author.
                        Grass Crown, The first man in Rome, Caesars women, Caesar, The october horse, fortunes favorites is the series.

                          Best Series: Badge of Honor by W.E.B Griffin

                          W.E.B. Griffin has one series (of many) called "Badge of Honor" which has 8 books in total.

                          They are very good books depicting the lives of many cops in Philidelphia. I am not a cop yet (hopfully soon, pending the BG investigation) but I think they are realistic enough. Anybody that wants to get sucked into a series might as well give the first book, "Men In Blue" a try. I also recommend his other series called "The Corps" for many of my brother Marines out there.

                            Mruaghh......that sounds great! I am finding that I am drawn to books during that era (and movies of course like Gladiator and King Arthur) King Arthur was fun in the sense that I recognized the time period and other little details from reading "How the Irish Saved Civilization." The roman times were facinatiing on so many different levels. I will have to look into that series

                              Then you'd like Jack Whytes series about King Arthurs Britan. It follows the thought like the movie King Arthur, except Camulod was founded by Romans right before the legions left around 400 A.D.
