Aaron's Favorites

No "man" can go wrong with these choices:

1. To Hell and Back - Audie Murphy (WWII hero) writes about his real experiences during WWII

2. Band of Brothers - Stephen Ambrose writes about the 101st Airborne during WWII

3. The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseni writes about his experiences in Afganistan

4. The Screwtape Letters OR The Great Divorce - C.S. Lewis

5. Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln - Doris Kearns

  1. Here's my votes and corresponding point values:
    To Hell and Back = 5
    The Kite Runner = 4
    Team of Rivals = 3
    The Screwtape Letters = 2 (I love both this and the great divorce, but have read them within the last 5 years. But if the rest of you haven't I'm more than happy to read them again, they're short)
    Band of Brothers = 1
