    Not sure what type of books your looking for but "The Outlaw Platoon" by Sean Parnell was a great first hand account read.

    Another good one would be "House to House" by Donald Bellavia

    "Thunder Run" by David Zucchino is a great one if the cadet branched Armor. Even if they did not it's still a good read.

    War and Peace was one of my favorite books to read all time. It took 6 months for me to get through it, but it was one heck of a read(assuming they haven't read it yet).
