Military Science Fiction

Military science fiction is a subgenre of science fiction in which the protagonist is part of a military service and the setting involves an armed conflict. Traditional military values are emphasized, and the narrative is often described from the point of view of a soldier. Military jargon, maneuvers and tactics are common, and are part of the genre's appeal. Military science fiction novels share many characteristics with space opera, since both often include interplanetary conflict.

Well-known military science fiction writers include Elizabeth Moon and Joe Haldeman.
