For Historical Non fiction:
"Killing Pablo" - whacking escobar
"with the old breed" - a classic, must reread several times.
"the Gun" - chivers, history of the AK
"one bullet away" - recon in OIF
civie version - "generation kill"
dude, how about reading books from the USMC Commandant's Reading List?
For Historical fiction:
Conn Iggulden's Genghis Khan's series - birth of an empire, lords of the bow, etc - it will make you appreciate what the mongol's accomplish. for e.g., they mounted the only successful winter assault through Russia. i recommend doing a books on tape on this one; the reader is awesome and gives life to the characters quite well.
Simon Scarrow's Roman Legion series - hard not read the whole series, make's one want to sign up and carry a gladius around.
Have fun reading.
