This won't necessarily help you "get through" the academy but it's some fascinating research on the psychology/physiological effects of deadly conflict, the limits/potential of the human mind and what-not.
Lt. Col Dave Grossman has done some really good research and training on the human mind. One of his more popular books is "On Combat" and I highly recommend that.

Like I prefaced the above with, reading that book won't be the make-or-break foundation for success at the academy but it's an important part of learning how we operate under stress/threats/fatigue.
