Adrian Goldsworthy (Writing Historical Novels)

Adventure stories will need to set the hero a challenge and then allow the hero to face this, overcome difficulties, and win out by the end of the story. If you are writing about a war and want to include large scale battles and sieges then you will want to decide why the characters should be there, how this will affect them, and what role it plays in their story. Simply grafting them on because readers will expect a big battle at the end will not work if the event is not integrated.
