I just finished "[b]Traitors Among Us: Inside the Spy Catcher's World[/b]," by Col. Stuart A. Herrington, USA Ret. He is the former head of the US Army Foreign Counterintelligence Activity, the top secret CI unit on Fort Meade. [url]www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0156011174/qid=1014852790/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/104-9829744-6605500[/url] It's a great look inside the end of the Cold War hunt for the most damaging spies the Army has ever seen. I just started "[b]The Templars[/b]," by Piers Paul Read. It's a history of the Knights Templar, starting with Abraham on Mount Moriah. [url]www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0312266588/qid=1014853577/sr=1-14/ref=sr_1_14/104-9829744-6605500[/url] After that will be "[b]Attack on the USS Liberty[/b]," by William D. Gerhard. [url]www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0894122436/qid=1014853736/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-9829744-6605500[/url] I know nothing about the last one except its title and author. We'll see. So what are you reading?

Another one you should add to your list is "See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism" by Robert Baer It's a story about how Washington politics sabotaged the CIA’s efforts to root out the world’s deadliest terrorists and in no small part paved the way for 9/11.

Re-reading: "Storm of Steel" by Ernst Junger. [img]http://lookinside-images.amazon.com/Qffs+v35leou2kOvg+5jIAm1BcWf4wRFTTaX8pI4YljhZ­dkuBRmESdAZc+/iMIzvGf6N/XOBFLkz3IhMz6Gunxz91RANJ8lKVGpC4N/8y1IuwI2kAGiY8pkPaFcAC2FMnJazvtGmkdbuS0YJ5+AY­Jg==[/img] Without a doubt, THE best first-person account of WWI. Read it! (...and Guy Sajer's "The Forgotten Soldier")
