The U.S. Marine Corps Official Reading List

While searching using the dreaded “” I came across this website titled “Commandant Of The U.S. Marine Corps Official Reading List”. “The General” by C.S. Forester is on the list for Colonels of the Marine Corps. Now I’m not sure how accurate this website is, but I could see this being on a reading list for Colonels and it is interesting that it is still used today, even when it is known that Hitler recommended it to his men. The book's "greatness" as a novel must over-shadow the fact that Hitler used it. Anyway, the site links back to this website, which is a collection of different booklists and it boasts “The Web's Largest Collection of Book Lists”. Just interesting.
