The Modern Fighting Man
This series of heavy tomes was started during the first industrial revolution and has remained a “must have” among guardsmen and mercenaries alike. Within its pages lies a record of the military history of Atlium, the Triune Alliance and other distant lands, with detailed descriptions of armor, weapons and vehicles employed by the modern fighting men who protect the boarders and keep the monsters away at night. The major drawback of this series is that it’s not always accurate, as arms, armor, and history changes overtime, so a new edition must be written every few decades. Currently this series is in its 16th edition.

“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.” – Lt. Col. Jean V. Dubois
