I'm working my way through 'Six years in the Hanoi Hilton', wondering what I should start next.

Alex Kershaw has some real good books about WW2, The Liberator is about Felix Sparks and how he and his division got through something like 500 days of campaigning from Sicily straight through the liberation of the camps in Germany, and another book of his Escape from the Deep is about Captain Dick O'Kane (mack daddy of submarine warfare, who has a memoir also worth reading) and his escape from his submarine and ensuing life as a POW in Japan.

Also recently read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Verr nice.

Tim O'Brien writes super good books, Dispatches by Michael Herr is a classic, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S Thompson is a classic if you're degenerate like me and the Master and Commander series by Patrick O'Brian is dry as fuck but dope if you like Age of Sail shit.

I've been doing the audio book thing with the whole collection of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes read by Stephen Fry. Got some others queued up that I can't think of without opening the app.
