For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway   

The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerrilla unit in the mountains of Spain, and the tragic death of an ideal. Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time. -Amazon Book Review

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

Written in the 6th century B.C., The Art of War remains the ultimate guide to combat strategy. Sun Tzu explains when and how to engage opponents in order to prevail in difficult situations. Instead of describing the logistics of warfare, he shows the reader how to succeed by motivating soldiers and leveraging tactical advantages.

The Fisherman – A unique and creative idea is a personalized fishing lure. Consider adding a nice quote or just having it monogrammed with his initials. He’ll be hooked when he sees it.

The Hiker –  A new hiking pack with a reservoir, and of course every great hiker needs a great pair of shoes.

The Camper – A set of camping tools, engraved with dad’s initials. To keep dad ready for any situation, a multi-tool is a great idea. If you want to add to it,  keep him well-rested with an air mattress that’s perfect for getting a good night’s sleep on those tough campgrounds.
