In my experience, first person works best for military fiction because it makes the work feel like you're reading an actual soldier's memoir.One thing I've avoided since middle school is writing anything in first-person perspective. I did it a lot when I was younger because of the story prompts we were given for creative writing in elementary school ('so-and-so and I'), but I found that reading first-person perspective annoyed me a LOT because I'd often forget WHO was speaking. "I this" and "I that" got soooo repetitive, too. I prefer third person perspective, typically third person omniscient (or close to omniscient), because it's easier to read, and easier to keep track of who is who. But that's just my opinion and two cents worth of :autism: :autism:.
