Top 10 books about U.S. military history

Thomas E. Ricks covered the U.S. military for the Washington Post from 2000 through 2008.

For Foreign Policy, he named ten "books anyone interested in U.S. military history should read."

One title on the list:
Son of the Morning Star
by Evan S. Connell

A great take on Custer, and also of the life of the American soldier in the taking of the West.
Read about all ten books on the list.
