Hi everyone, here are 6 must-read military science fiction books. I’d love to get your recommendations in the comments. What’s your fav mil-sci-fi?

After her family is killed and her homeworld occupied, young Kathreen Martin is sent to the distant world of Furoris for re-education. She will live the rest of her life as a serf – to be bought and sold as a commodity of the Imperial Network.
When her only chance of escape is ruined, a chance mistaken identity offers her a new life as the orphaned daughter of a First-Citizen Senator and heiress to a vast fortune.
She vows to claw her way into power to sit among the worlds’ elite. Then, with her own hands, she will reap bloody vengeance on them all.
But, to beat them she must play their game. She must become worse than them all.

Prometheus has the chance to bring his wife back from the dead, but doing so will mean the destruction of Earth.Spanning time, planets and dimensions, Black Milk draws to a climactic point in a post-apocalyptic future, where humanity, stranded with no planet to call home, fights to survive against a post-human digital entity that pursues them through the depths of space.Five lives separated by aeons are inextricably linked by Prometheus’s actions:
Ystil.3 is an AI unit sent back in time from the distant future to investigate Prometheus’s discovery…
The mysterious Lydia has devoted her life to finding a planet that the last remaining humans can call home…
Tom Jones (he’s a HUGE fan!) is an AI trapped inside a digital subspace, lost and desperate to find his way back to his beloved in real-time…
Dr Norma Stanwyck is a neuroscientist from 24th Century Earth whose personal choices ripple throughout time…
Prometheus must learn the necessity of death or the entire universe will be swallowed by his grief.

What are your thoughts on the Ember War

Scott Free says:

Live free or Die by Ringo is kinda terrible but I love it anyways.

J.E. Anderson says:

Someone else mentioned Jerry Pournelle. I would like to suggest King David’s Spaceship and Janissaries by the same author. He also edited a series of books called There will Be War which contains short stories by numerous authors and also essays. The series includes the original Ender’s Game novella.

In addition, I would mention the Bolo series of books first started by Keith Laumer. The series is about the Dinochrome Brigade; composed of sentient armored fighting machines who fight for humanity. Since first appearing in the 60’s, a number of authors have written short stories and novels in the same universe including David Weber, John Ringo, Linda Evans, Mercedes Lackey, and David Drake.

Man, you're voice is sooooo relaxing

Spence Sanders says:

I don't know how anyone could actually confuse the movie Starship Troopers as having anything to do with the book except a few names. In order to read it y9ou need to find a dead tree version printed pre-1980. I have a 1979 edition and one of the 1987 one I bought in the 90's. There are a lot of changes, small things that individually do not change the story, but do change the entire feel and tone. The idea of patriotism and personal responsibility takes a major hit in the newer versions.

omnivision6 says:

All of these are amongst my favorites except Old Man's war. Haven't read that one but need to check it out. Starship Troopers hits different after I got out of the Military.

Mando'a Lessons says:

Id have to say republic commando just because mandalorians, but outside that forever war is phenominal but id have to say my favorite is Enemy Mine, by barry b longyear, an extremely undernoticed author despite his accomplishments.

Activated Complex says:

The Falling Torch, by Algis Budrys
