They say that humanity’s history is built on wars and conflicts. It’s hard to talk about history without discussing war and vice versa. But most war stories are told by those who witnessed or were directly affected by these conflicts and are now long gone. Rarely do we find recent historical war fiction books by living authors. Today, ReadersMagnet presents five active authors of historical war fiction. Their novels feature the realities of two of the most significant wars in United States history- the American Civil War and the Second World War.
