Harry Turtledove recommends
thumb
The Wild Blue and the Gray (1991)
William Sanders
"THE WILD BLUE AND THE GRAY is a tragicomic alternate look at the first great catastrophe of the twentieth century. Laughter is often the only way to shield ourselves from pain that would otherwise be intolerable. Sanders understands this well--and also that, the more things change, the more they sometimes look the same."

Against the Tide of Years (1999)
(Island in the Sea of Time, book 2)
S M Stirling

Honoured Enemy (2001)
(Legends of the Riftwar, book 1)
Raymond E Feist and William R Forstchen
"One of the most intriguing writers today in the field of historical and military science fiction"
thumb
Lion's Blood (2002)
(Lion's Blood, book 1)
Steven Barnes

36 (2012)
Martin Berman-Gorvine
"Read 36 as a well-written, scarily plausible if-this-goes-on novel. Or read it as a highly intelligent philosophical meditation. But whatever you do, read it."
