It seems that we have all the wars covered! I was pretty surprised to see the War of 1812 up there, book two of that series was just recently released. There is a book by Robert Moss on the Utah War, but I kept the list to series or at least books that had sequels. Anyone written series on the Mexican American, Spanish -American war, Philippine-American wars yet? Not to mention the numberous undeclared wars. Looks like there is room for growth! Go read and write that historical fiction people.

Please comment to reccommend other books to readers! I'm sure there is more great war fiction out there.
