Lanza apparently had copies of the following books in his bedroom, probably others:
Strange Stories, Amazing Facts; Grimm Fairy Tales; We Die Alone; The Anti-Federalist Paper; Behind Hitler's Lines; Practical Shooting: Beyond Fundamentals; and The Glock in Competition."
More books from Lanza's room: "No Surrender: My Thirty-Year War" - a Book by a Japanese officer Hiro Onoda, who not knowing thatt ww2 ended on had remained hidden in a Philippine jungle till the 1970s, fighting a one man war against the US.
"Death and Taxes" - there's many books by this name, it is not clear which is the one Lanza had. "The sledge patrol" - book about ww2 Danish and Norwegian volunteers who patrolled the coast of Greenland. "American Military History and the Evolution of Western Warfare" - title says it all "The sorrows of young Werther" - German classic literature by Goethe. Ratman's notebooks - is a 1968 short novel by Stephen Gilbert. It features an unnamed social misfit who relates better to rats than to humans Oba, the Last Samurai: Saipan 1944-45 - a story of a Japanese soldier during the ww2 campaign for the island of Saipan in the pacific. Reflections of a Warrior: Six Years as a Green Beret in Vietnam - title says it all Salt: A World History - The title says it all. It is about the role of the slat trade in history. The Jungle is Neutral: A Soldier's Two-Year Escape from the Japanese Army - Again ww2, this time it is the story of a British guerilla operating behind Japanese lines in Malaysia. Notes of a revolutionary - a book by a soviet dissident and his critique of and struggle against the communist regime. We Die Alone: A WWII Epic Of Escape And Endurance - The history of a group of ww2 Norwegian commandos that make a failed attack on a German outpost in north Norway. Only one man survived and the book tells the story of his escape and survival in arctic conditions.
Overall Lanza seems to have been interested in military history, especially single soldiers or small groups operating behind enemy lines or in extreme climate conditions.
Also, downstairs in between Nancy's book there was the four volume history book “The Three Kingdoms” about the era just fall of the Han dynasty in China. It wasn't in Adam's room, but I am pretty sure it was more of his book than Nancy's.
