This is a list of 100 genuine books on a variety of military subjects that could be found on a bookshelf. Authors are listed where applicable, as is original language, if not English, publication year and some brief details on the subject.
Subjects covered include such as strategy, tactics, history, leadership, biographies and memoirs of military leaders, guerilla warfare and the changing nature of combat into the 21st century. The vast majority are from the 20th century or later but some are older. Most are written from a Western standpoint, especially Britain and the United States.
The books can be used to flesh out a bookshelf in a modern setting.
