Republic Commando 1-3

The Republic Commando series (parts 1-3) by Karen Traviss
Originally commissioned as a tie-in to the Republic Commando video game, author Karen Traviss's writing was so highly praised its vivid characters and realistic treatment of military life that the story was continued in a popular series. The story follows the life of several clonetrooper commandos during the Clone Wars, delving deeply into their identity as cloned soldiers, as well as their sometimes lackluster relationships with the Jedi and others. Packed with lots of military action.
