Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
2.  Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
The list author says:
  "Marlantes' Vietman War novel makes me terrified of going into battle while leaving me confident that it would be an honor to do so for my country. Also, it serves as a good reminder to influence what I can and stop worrying about the things I can't change at the present time."

Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West
7.  Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy
The list author says:
  "It's undeniably uncomfortable and violent, but I can't imagine any book making that happen better than Blood Meridian. Read it, but have something happy around to read afterwards.
