However, The Affair tells the story of the particular events that led to his leaving the military and since that's mentioned so often in all of the novels, the full story of how it happened is beneficial to the reader (IMO).

You're probably right, though. If I was just starting the series, I guess I'd probably read The Enemy first and then The Affair.
Great, thank you! I'm already 4 books in but definitely going to read those 2 before continuing with the rest.
