MJ Figures - 15mm Brits and Argies for the Falklands!
Generation Kill - My primary inspriation for this project, both in book and movie form. To me Gen Kill is the modern "Band of Brothers" and focuses on the Recon Marines who helped spearhead the invasion of Iraq.
Green Zone - For a Matt Damon movie (liberal alert inserted here) it was chock full of action.
House to House: An Epic Memoir of War - David Bellavia's personal account of the fighting in Fallujah. His description of the house fight in which he met the enemy in true hand to hand combat is powerfully emotional, and his honest admission about his struggles to resume a civilian life is an aspect of war oft mentioned but not readily understood.
Hurt Locker - Solid movie, even if a bit overdone.
My War: Killing Time in Iraq - A witty and at times jaded account from grunt perspective.
No True Glory: A Frontline Account of the Battle for Fallujah
One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine Officer - Nathaniel Fick's work on his experiences in the military. Was the prmary platoon commander in Generation Kill. The word hero is used far too often, but to me Fick tried to do the right things under stressful situations and inept leadership, and he brought his men home. In today's world, that might be the new definition of hero.
Traveller Collector's Guide - Great source on the RAFM Citadel 15mm figs.
