I'm just a newb trooper, sorry. The setting is "Fantasy like Lord of the Rings, but more closer to earth, no beasts, maybe other monster humanoid species but not now, with magic, but not that close cos of total absence of anything like christianism around". The hero do not quite survive, he becomes a very powerful and amnesic-of-his-past-life undead. This undead will do lots of rampage and stuff, and noone will connect him with his origin, but in a plot twist it will be shown. I'm quite afraid of giving more details cos I'm a pussy and I'm scared of being ripped off. So, sorry, lets keep that vague pace please, cos this could spark the idea I need.
Also, Hail of Bullets was the first thing I thought of, promptly demised cos it's borderline with cliché.

Yes, defending his country on a very long campaign. I also tried to relate the sacrifice of the life of the husband to save the duke and couldn't. Ideas pointing that way will help.
