Jade Force of Misera — a series by Lazlo Zalezac

The warriors of Jade Force are trained from an early age in the martial arts, the history of wars, and the science of waging war. They are raised to see war as something brutal and inhumane. War is a matter of life and death, not a political game. It is to be taken seriously with acceptance of the full consequences of entering into armed conflict. They are unleashed upon a world that employs wars as casual moves on the landscape of international politics and believes that wars can be fought humanely.

1 The Rise of Jade Force

Two Colonels meet weekly for lunch at a restaurant to discuss the history of war, the sad state of the current Vam War, and to speculate on how things could be done. It's all just idle speculation to pass the time, or is it?
