majri.12

First of all let me just say this, im a huge fan of Lazlo Zalezac's work, iv seen almost every one of he's stories and i enjoy he's type of writing.
lately i started reading "Jade Force of Misera series" (well more like my second read of it. go check it out) and i was wondering if there is something like it. So basically im looking for a WAR story, a long story or anything to fill the void in my heart.

Clan Amir series by Ernest Bywater

Basically a 50+ year war between Berant and a consortium of war contractors. The stories have the good, bad and ugly of warfare.

I just cannot get the scene of the girl singing at that one battle out of my head. Chokes me up each time I think of it.

'The Private' by Random Writings. Sadly incomplete, but it's long and IMO one of the most engrossing war stories on SOL.

The Dareed War by Ernest Bywater.

On my random stories today was one entitled The British Sea War written by Sirdar. This author seems to have written a number of war stories and might be worth checking out.

Is dead tree ok for you?
If you hav'n't read Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe series, give it a try.
20 books, here some titles:
Sharpe's Tiger – Richard Sharpe and the Siege of Seringapatam, 1799
Sharpe's Eagle – Richard Sharpe and the Talavera Campaign, July 1809
Sharpe's Regiment – Richard Sharpe and the Invasion of France, June to November 1813
Sharpe's Waterloo – Richard Sharpe and the Waterloo Campaign, 15 June to 18 June 1815

The Anthony Carter series by Argon has several stories set in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, with characters fighting in the Napoleonic Wars.

Just sent a DM concerning a certain publisher of Military SF...

All in dead-tree:

George McDonald Fraser's Flashman novels (there are plenty to choose from) necessarily deal occasionally with battles. The one novel I think has the most relevance is Flashman at the Charge, where in trying to stay away from trouble in the Crimea, Flashman gets involved in the charge of the heavy brigade, the thin red line, and the charge of the light brigade, all on the same day. He's then captured and spends the rest of the book working towards escaping from Russia.

John Ringo has mainly military (often SF) stuff, and many books are available on the free Baen CDs. His Paladin of Shadows series would fit neatly here on SOL with many of his normal readers objecting to the sexual content (which would only be 'some sex' here).

Agreed.

Although (and I've said this before), 'Tiger by the Tail' was written with the wrong co-authoer.

Also, the David Drake Belisaurius series, if you like revised history with a twist.

Al Steiner's Greenies has a pretty good WAR in it. The first quarter dosen't really have much fighting, and the story has a lot of focus on the politics surrounding the war, but it's my favorite WAR story on the site.
