-Mine Were of Trouble by Peter Kemp= A fantastic delve into the nationalist side of the Spanish Civil War.

-Sun and Steel by Yukio Mishima= A look into the mind of one of Japans greatest authors, and his journey with self reflection and self improvement.

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis= A starting point for jumping into Christianity, C.S. Lewis has one of the most profound voices on Christianity.
