Ive never read any Louis L'Amour, in fact the closest I've come to reading a western is "Wolf in Shadow" by David Gemmell, sort of a future western, well worth a read, I believe his genre is Heroic Fantasy.

The Hunt for Red October was the first non sci-fi or fantasy novel I ever read, but growing up I read a lot of technical books on military weapons, so when I saw it on the shelf, it just seemed right that I should read it. Since then I have always enjoyed any books on subs. A couple of good WW2 ones include Run Silent Run Deep and Wahoo, and after recently reading All Quiet on the Western Front, I might hunt down a translation of Das Boot.

I've read Foreign Legions by Drake, it was quite a while back, and I don't remember much, so it didn't make much of an impression. But I will look at some of his stuff at the second hand book shop I go to, any recommendations.
