Writing Military Science Fiction: Infantry

Writing Military Science Fiction: Infantry

A Resource, a reference manual, a guide book.

A crucial reference for writers of military science fiction and a priceless resource for other writers. What goes on during a firefight? What does a Staff Sergeant do? A Corporal? A Lieutenant?  A Captain? How big is a company? How far can troops march in a day? What are the mechanics of an orbital assault drop? Why aren’t all soldiers equipped with machine guns? How many Marines are in a squad and what are their jobs? What is the French Foreign Legion equivalent of a sergeant? What does adrenaline do to a human body? This book also covers things like types of armor, weapons, biotechnology, cybernetics, psionics and so much more.

Over 250 pages of crucial knowledge and numerous links to more detailed information. With some information from www.MilSF.com it contains a very significant amount of new information and updated sections.

Writing Military Science Fiction: Infantry is a monster of a book and runs to 258 (A4) pages.

It is packed full of information about writing military science fiction, and each section is broken down into numerous sub-sections. The author is ex-military, and this book is invaluable to writers of military sci-fi who may not know a platoon from a squad, or when different tactics might be employed.

One of the strengths of this book (besides the content) is that the information has been placed into smaller sub-sections, making it easier to find information (and avoid the need to trawl the internet).

I purchased this in paperback format, but it is available on the Kindle too.
