Portraying War in Fantasy

Explore the treatment of war in Fantasy. How has its presentation changed over the years? Depictions range from epic war saga in the Lord of the Rings to a modern-day supernatural war in the Dresden Files series, to the alternate steampunk civil war in The Clockwork Century series. Considering the alternate history of the war on terror in The Mirage, are readers ready for stories about recent wars such as the ones in Afghanistan and Iraq? Are there fantasies which have played a role in changing cultural opinion about war?
