But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance Fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndic.
Appalled by the hero worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. Sven Tveskoeg, an ex-sergeant demoted for insubordination and sentenced to death, is a vicious killer with a stubborn streak of loyalty. Sven possesses a fierce if untutored intelligence and a genetic makeup that is Perhaps it is these unique abilities that bring Sven to the attention of OctoV. Armed with a SIG diabolo—an intelligent gun—and an illegal symbiont called a kyp, Sven is sent to a faraway planet, the latest battleground between the Uplifted and OctoV.
There he finds himself in the midst of a military disaster, one that will take all his courage—and all his firepower—to survive. But an even deadlier struggle is taking place, a struggle that will draw the attention of the United Free. Sven knows he is a pawn, and pawns have a bad habit of being sacrificed. All of the preceding came from a forum on the internet, so it must be true.
Those who love schlock that stops just short of parody will be delighted. The amazon. Once his training begins, one of the elusive and prophetic Trith appears to give Joe a spine-chilling prophecy that the universe has been anticipating for millions of years: Joe will be the one to finally shatter the vast alien government known as Congress.
And the Trith cannot lie… But first Joe has to make it through bootcamp. Apparently, there is a tabletop game out there called Warhammer 40, with a serious cult following. The game involves armies of humans, aliens, and robots spread across the galaxy. There are multiple spin-offs from the Warhammer 40k universe, including over books. The heroes are always in peril, violent action erupts every few pages, and the characters are drawn with enough complexity and humanity that you actually care what happens to them. And if you like it, there are fourteen more books in the series.
As they travel from warzone to warzone in the Chaos-infested Sabbat Worlds system, the Ghosts must not only carry out the most dangerous of missions but also survive the deadly politics of the Imperial Guard.
The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets that are fit to live on are scarce—and alien races willing to fight us for them are common.
Warriors of War (Tank Science Fiction Series #3)
So we fight, both to defend Earth, and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, and unyielding. Earth itself is a backwater. Everybody knows that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF.
Then he joined the CDF. He has only the vaguest idea what to expect, because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine—and what he will become is far stranger.

Millions died; billions more perished in the aftermath. Chinran did stop—but in the process nearly lost his sanity and his soul. Who do you send after a killer like that?

Heinlein found himself under attack both from within and outside the science fiction community for his views, so he wrote Starship Troopers to clarify and defend his military and political views at the time. The year is , and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.
But as he starts a career of supposed privilege, he soon learns that the good food and decent health care come at a steep price…and that the settled galaxy holds far greater dangers than military bureaucrats or the gangs that rule the slums. The Forever War is a science fiction allegory for the Vietnam War, written from the perspective of a reluctant participant in the middle of a seemingly endless war while the world back home changes beyond recognition. Not hiding, not turned black, but gone. A cinder cone was left off the map. Could it be new?
Or, stranger yet, could it be artificial? The answer may be lying beside it—a dying guest who brings devastating news for Edward and for Planet Earth. In the year , the Second Empire of Man spans hundreds of star systems, thanks to the faster-than-light Alderson Drive. No other intelligent beings have ever been encountered, not until a light sail probe enters a human system carrying a dead alien.
The probe is traced to the Mote, an isolated star in a thick dust cloud, and an expedition is dispatched. Robert A.
The empire of the Shaa had lasted 10 millennia. But the Shaa began to commit ritual suicide when it became clear that their near immortality came at a price they were unwilling to pay. The death of the last of the Shaa leaves the galaxy-wide empire leaderless, and into this power vacuum flow the pretenders to the throne: the Naxids, oldest client race of the Shaa, who believe themselves inheritors of the empire; and a frail alliance of the remaining races, including humanity. The undead Emperor has ruled his mighty interstellar empire of eighty human worlds for sixteen hundred years.
Because he can grant a form of eternal life-after-death, creating an elite known as the Risen, his power is absolute. He and his sister, the Child Empress, who is eternally a little girl, are worshipped as living gods. The Rix are machine-augmented humans who worship very different gods: AI compound minds of planetary size. Cool, relentless fanatics, their only goal is to propagate such AIs. They begin by taking the Child Empress hostage. Separated by light years, bound by an unlikely love, Zai and pacifist Senator Nara Oxham must both face the challenge of the Rix, and both will hold the fate of the empire in their hands.

Sure, there had been rumors of the Others—the sworn enemies of the Confederation—being spotted in this sector of space.
But there were always rumors. The key thing was to recruit the Silsviss into the Confederation before the Others either attacked or claimed this lizard-like race of warriors for their own side. And everything seemed to be going perfectly.www.regenerativewebinar.com/wp-content/map20.php

Maybe too perfectly. I can hardly believe your military sf list. You must have not read these books. Starship Troopers and The Forever War are not in the top ten. Sorry, but this list is ridiculous, in my opinion. Ringo is number one, really. Probably at the top. Detain us if you wish. But I cannot tell you where we are going.
I can only ask you to trust us. You're making a mistake of galactic proportions! Assaulting an Earth Alliance officer, attempting mass murder…! Green Drazi : Green must fight Purple. Purple must fight Green. Is no other way! Ivanova : Just my luck.
