I am a HUGE fan of Bernard Cornwell. I think his Saxon series and Warlord Chronicles are some of the best books that I've ever read. However, I have read almost all of his stuff. Does anyone know of another author who is comparable?
Tim Severin's "Viking" series
Valerio Massimo Manfredi
Definitely Letty's suggestion of Simon Scarrow!
Robert Harris - Pompeii and Imperium
Michael Curtis Ford
If you like hisotical mysteries, Steven Saylor has a great series.
Okay, that's all I got for what I think of as "guy books", which is totally weird because I enjoy these books. ;-)

If you like Arthurian fiction. Jack Whyte has a great, very long series you might like. It starts with "The Skystone". He also has a Knights Templar Trilogy that begins with "Knights of the Black and White".
Maybe Wilbur Smith. He has a couple of different series, I think. I've only read one, "Birds of Prey", but I do plan on reading more one day. Definitely action-packed page-turners that are also well written. The series is called "The Courtney Family Adventures". I really bet you'd like these!
