"The Frozen Hours" - New book by Jeff Shaara, about the Korean War and the Marines at Chosin Reservoir specifically. Pretty much like his others.

Also reading:

D-Day: The Battle for Normandy (Antony Beevor)
Rückzug: The German Retreat from France, 1944
Waterloo: The History of Four Days, Three Armies, and Three Battles (Cornwell)

Spymaster by Oleg Kalugin. Kalugin is a retired KGB agent who later went on to denounce the organization and had a bit of a falling out with the Soviet establishment. He spent 30+ years with the organization during the height of the Cold War, so his stories are really interesting.

Over the last 6 months or so I've been reading Cold War history, so it's been an interesting change of topic from the usual Revolutionary War or GWOT I had been doing.
