    Any feedback on categorization would be welcome as well.

    Sir, I would suggest three new fiction sections. Thrillers, Alternate history and Military Science Fiction. Both would include some lighter reading, which may be good from a selling point.
    If interested, I can send you several authors later for both of those themes, which are best-sellers.
    Best regards,

    A few books I've read recently that I think would be good (just off the top of my head):

    No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam by Reza Aslan

    AK-47: The Weapon that Changed the Face of War by Larry Kahaner

    The Interrogators: Task Force 500 and America's Secret War Against Al Qaeda by Chris Mackey and Greg Miller

    We've already got that included, along with your book Rethinking Insurgency.

    Good to see you around on the forum though. Any suggestions for books on the subject of COIN used for research in the process of writing your books would be very welcome as well.

    Had the first one added already, but I've added the Yon book under the COIN & Terrorism category.

    They have to be available on Amazon to be sold through the WAB Bookstore.

    Here are 3 on WWI, one of which I previously suggested, with links:

    McBride: A Rifleman Went to War http://www.amazon.com/Rifleman-Went-...9929571&sr=8-1

    Alexander: Through the Wheat: The U.S. Marines in World War I
    http://www.amazon.com/Through-Wheat-...9929428&sr=8-1

    Jünger: Storm of Steel
    http://www.amazon.com/Storm-Steel-Pe...9929371&sr=8-1

    One on WW2:

    Knappe: Soldat: Reflections of a German Soldier, 1936-1949
    http://www.amazon.com/Soldat-Reflect...9929727&sr=1-1

    One on Vietnam:

    Palmer: Summons of the Trumpet: U.S.-Vietnam in Perspective
    http://www.amazon.com/Summons-Trumpe...9930487&sr=1-1

    And one bit of literature, addressing a different war.
    I previously suggested this, but had forgotten that the English version has a slightly different title. This is an interesting book, exploring both the mechanics and the morals of running a ruthless peasant insurgency against occupation forces.

    Lons: The Warwolf: A Peasant Chronicle of the Thirty Years War
