I'm looking for suggestions for reading on modern armored warfare. Specifically I'd like to find some fiction on WW3 scenarios involving armored warfare. I've picked up a couple of books but don't know the genre real well so don't know who to look for. I figured some of you guys have to have some suggestions.


Also, I'd like to find some good space combat books if anyone has some suggestions. I'm reading the Honor Harrington series at the moment but it's not really doing it for me. A 10 page space battle or two packed into 250 pages of political maneuvering and calling the main character several off colored names is not my idea of good space combat action.

The Sassinak series is pretty decent.
It's by Elizabeth Moon

Ghost Rider, can you give me some details? I've seen it before and have been curious but haven't picked it up yet.

Some of the stuff I've read by him include power armor combat in two different series.

Red Storm Rising-Tom Clancy
Team Yankee-Harld Coyle
Red Army-Ralph Peters

Enjoyed all three of these. Although somewhat dated would still be a good read. All late Cold War era.

Team yankee was a good one, I might have to check out some more of Cyole's stuff. Red Army has been recommended a couple of times as well so that may be my next purchase.

I absolutely loved Ringo's Empire of Man books - March Upcountry, March to the Sea and March to the Stars - which he co-authored with David Weber. The fourth one - tentatively titled We Few - is scheduled to be out next February. Ringo says on his website that they could do as many as 3 more books in the series.

The books revolve around Prince Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang MacClintock (Roger for short), the last son of the Human Empire's Queen, big game hunter extrodinaire and playboy. At the beginning of the first book his spaceship is sabatoged and the survivors are stranded on an alien planet populated by midevil society w/nothing to protect him but his personal detachment of Marine bodygaurds. Who just happen to hate him.

Its a great series of books!

Here's a link to the first one at Ringo's website:
