Military Fantasy recommendations

The Malazan series has been mentioned. I liked Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates, but was disappointed by my lack of comprehension (or maybe the author's lack of explanation) of how the Empire, the Emperor (ess), the gods, and the on-going divine war were related. That being said, I think Deadhouse Gates could be enjoyed by itself. It's the story of a historian traveling with an army on campaign.
