Thanks B, I actually own several of those. I already know which I think is the best ("The Wargame", by Young & other authors:

I'm curious to see what others think (or if people even read books "about" gaming).

Plus 1 to Tommy, Schweinehund is a great book.

You have to add Achtung Scweinhund to the greats but I would suggest Henry Hyde's Wargaming Compendium should be on the list too.
