Another recent book that I dare anyone to read and not be incredibly moved is Joker One: A Marine Platoon's Story of Courage, Leadership, and Brotherhood by Donovan Campbell.
Another must-read that this crowd may appreciate is Bushido: Samurai Ethics and the Soul of Japan by Inazo O. Nitobe describing a philosopy and ethical standard that has a place in modern time.
Many more to list however I'll be quiet for now. That said, I greatly appreciate all of the other suggestions!
