I thought the group might find this information useful and
interesting The head of each branch of the United States Military
has published a professional development reading list. These list
probably first started with the Commandant of the Marine Corps, with
the other branches following suit.
The lists contain books that examine the heritage of the branch
(history), leadership issues and current events (like terrorism).
Additionally, the War College has published an extensive list which
outlines world military history. The War College list is organized
by time period (like medieval) and conflict (such as Vietnam War).
