#1 Looking for a good book suggestion10-01-2013, 08:31 AM
Anyone know a good Sci Fi/military book series? I read the legacy of the aldanata, and I am all caught up on The lost fleet series. (a good read by the way)We're from Philadelphia, We Fight- Chip Kelly

I'm currently reading The Well Of Ascension book 2 in the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. And I recently finished The Way of Kings also by Sanderson. Both Sci-Fi with some Military.

It's not sci-fi but it goes a long way toward exposing the ignorance or deliberate deception of Leftists.

Some series, some not, but anything written by Azimov beats about anything written by any other SiFi writer, although Clarke's Rama series is good.

These are a little on the aged side...
Alan Dean Foster's 'The Damned' Trilogy
1. A Call to Arms
2. The False Mirror
3. The Spoils of War
One of the very few sci-fi arcs I've read where humans are the bad-asses of galaxy.
Human kind's first contact is with an alien alliance that has been at war for a thousand years; and the aliens suck at making war.
The alien survey team is astonished to find a planet awash with weapons that far exceed the average level of technology around them.
They are cautiously hopeful when they find that the natives are faster, stronger, and more agile, cunning, and aggressive than the most warlike of their own number.
Harry Turtledove's 'Worldwar' Series
1. In the Balance
2. Upsetting the Balance
3. Tilting the Balance
4. Striking the Balance
World War II is interrupted by an alien invasion. The aliens are reptilian, and extremely slow to change and adapt to anything.
Their probes, sent a mere 900 years or so earlier, show medieval knights and barbarians as the premiere fighting force on the planet.
Attacking with 1990's level mil-tech should be a walk, after all, how much can a race change in a thousand-year blink of an eye?We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

Oh yes I have read Fosters The Damned series and I loved it, just wished he came out with more books in that series. I have the first book in the world war series but never gotten around to reading it. Thanks for the suggestions :)
I am going to try this series by B.V larsonWe're from Philadelphia, We Fight- Chip Kelly

I have liked, and am rereading, the Honor Harrington series by David Weber and the Lt Leary series by David Drake, and there is an Elizabeth Moon space opera I like the name of which escapes me.
