Of the options offered? Warning: mentioning the movies without having read the books is a down-votable offense.

Offering an alternative professional military fiction is acceptable, but six answers to a survey is not supportable.

Most anything by Tom Clancy. In there is a rich universe of the military environment, down to small details that are correctly depicted. He did hang around a lot of military and had a security clearance as a civilian.

SSgt (Join to see) Yes yes, your PREDICTIONS are very useful to have in the field, just like a general's overall operational plan is very useful to have in the field. The individuals themselves running around with you and your fireteam in enemy territory? A bit less handy.

True professional military fiction in my world, W. E. B. Griffin:

CLANDESTINE OPERATIONS, is a thrilling look into the deadly espionage of the Cold War and the beginning of a top secret organization called the Central Intelligence Agency.

THE BROTHERHOOD OF WAR is the first of the Griffin series. Its epic nine novels span the period from World War II to Vietnam, capturing all the drama and challenge of Army life.

THE CORPS series covers the fighting men of the U.S. Marine Corps from World War II to Korea.

The MEN AT WAR series follows the secret agents in Colonel William “Wild Bill” Donovan’s Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II.

The World War II series HONOR BOUND follows OSS agents sent to neutral Argentina to secretly undermine German operations there.

THE PRESIDENTIAL AGENT is a cutting-edge insider’s look at intel and politics in the battle of counterterrorism, from the White House to covert ops in foreign lands.

1SG (Join to see) I need to get into more of Clancy's books. I've only read a couple. Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games and Sum of All Fears. But I do enjoy his books. If you enjoy Clancy give Vince Flynn a try. His Mitch Rapp series is pretty good. Right now I'm reading 13 Hours: the Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi. So far a very interesting book by guys from the GRS who where their.

I really enjoyed Brotherhood of War series. I was riding the trains from Denmark to Germany for Army Reserve, so enjoyed the reading time.

If historical fiction counts, I would say "Once An Eagle" is among the best I have read.

CPT Aaron Kletzing Historical fiction absolutely counts (Gates of Fire) and a few before you have cited Once an Eagle as a favorite! I'll have to read it.
