The 10 Best Contemporary War Novels By Adrian Bonenberger Jan 17, In his memoir Afghan Postveteran Adrian Bonenberger provides a visceral account of his bumpy road to self-discovery during his two deployments, and his experiences during his years of service. Bonenberger chose his 10 favorite contemporary war novels for Tip Sheet. Much of the written intellectual and literary production thus far has focused on journalist and soldier war memoirs, and recently there has been a trend toward fictional accounts of the War on Terror or, more accurately, The Global War on Terror [under Bush] and Global Contingency Operations [under Obama]. While the fictional output is still relatively limited, below are, in my estimation, the best novels to date.
Edit On a planet called Heavenall hell is breaking loose. Heaven is a paradise for both humans and Draconians — a place of rest in more ways than A war novel. The Doctor comes here on a trivial mission — to find a bookor so he says — and Ace, wandering alone in the city, becomes involved with a charismatic Traveller called Jan.
But the Doctor is strenuously opposed to the romance. What is he trying to prevent?
Is he planning some more deadly game connected with the mysterious objects causing the military forces of Heaven such concern? Archaeologist Bernice Summerfield thinks so.
This time, has the Doctor gone too far? Plot Edit Ace attends the funeral of her old friend Julian in Perivale. Afterward, the Doctor takes her to the planet Heaven in the year The bucolic planet lies on the border between the human and Draconian empires, and is neutral territory, serving as a cemetery world for both races in their long and sporadic wars against each other and against the Daleks.
While the Doctor visits the governmental library in Joycetown in search of a lost manuscript, The Papers of Felsecar, Ace gets involved with a group of Travellers, a nomadic bunch that has lived on Heaven for some years now.

It has orders for Phaedrus… later, he encounters Roisa, and warns her of terrible things to come. He meets with Miller, the head of the local military detachment, and takes him into his confidence, warning him of the real reason for his visit; Miller keeps it to himself, but is convinced to help the Doctor.
Miller tells him about a mysterious sphere in space, which was spotted briefly before vanishing. The Doctor meets Benny, and she shows him a buried Heavenite observatory with a strange telescope and a decayed body inside—the first Heavenite remains found.
The Doctor is disturbed by what he sees there. The arm is infected with white fungal filaments. The two men are old friends; both volunteered for military experimentation during their service. As the Travellers gather, Roisa begs the Travellers to leave the planet and leave her behind.
