I am looking for a story that is about a war, and in that war a single persons progression. Preferably from a low ranked soldier up to something higher. The war can be historical, present, or futuristic. Only restriction is no yaoi or shonen ai
Some examples of what I am looking for are: Kingdom The normal period in Berserk
Any help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
