From incredible battles to depictions of military life, military manga has a lot to offer its readers. If warfare, politics, and military life fascinate you, use this list to guide you to your next great read. 

You might be looking for military manga that deals with historical warfare. If so, a great choice is Osamu Tezuka's legendary manga Message to Adolf, which obviously relates to World War II. If you'd rather read about more fantastical warfare, try Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan, a manga in which humans must fight against man-eating monsters - but the monsters are not what they seem. No matter what you're looking for, if you're a fan of military manga, there's something on this list for you.

The rankings are determined by your votes, so vote up the manga about the military that you think deserve the top spots.
