10- Rogue Warrior by Richard Marcinko and John Weisman   

Why be bored when you can read the Rogue Warrior series?  If you haven’t discovered these gems its time to let the Rogue Warrior astonish you with a whole new vernacular, and a deeper than ever before look at covert operations.  The Rogue Warrior was the nonfiction book that was so good, the authors were banned from writing any more nonfiction and later turned their continuing series into “fiction.”  Do you know what made the Navy Seals famous? – the Rogue Warrior.  The Rogue Warrior talks like no one else.  His world is one you’ve never seen before.  Character descriptions are fantastic.  The action is unbelieveable.  The only reason every book in this series is not rated a ten is that after the first few books they lose some originality, because you’ve learned the vernacular and are familiar with the action of spec warriors by the time you get farther down the series.

10- Rogue Warrior: Red Cell by Richard Marcinko and John Weisman  

Book number two in the series was not a let down.  I couldn’t put it down.

Rogue Warrior: Task Force Blue
by Richard Marcinko and John Weisman

Okay, by now a little bit of repetition is evident.  You know the lingo, you know the action, but you’ll still love it.

9 – Rogue Warrior: Designation Gold by Richard Marcinko and John Weisman

More good reading.

8- Rogue Warrior: Seal Force Alpha by Richard Marcinko and John Weisman 

  Naturally our hero starts off in a precarious and hazardous position and Mr. Murphy has arrived to to screw things up.  Then there’s China; they’re the threat now.  Something’s going on and it smells bad in the executive branch of the government.  Is this a novel or what’s really happening in Washington.  You’ll be asking yourself that many times.  I know I ranked this an 8, but if it had been the first book of the series that I had read, I would have ranked it a 9 or 10.

6 – Fortunes of War by Stephen Coonts

You have to love planes and weapons to love this book.  If you don’t, you won’t get past the poorly developed characters, and the lack of tension, despite the military setting.  I quit reading this book at page 97.
