Historical Fiction Liked by Men

Historical Fiction seems to be a genre read mostly by women. Occasionally I come across a historical fiction book that has a lot of men giving it 4 or 5 stars. Usually these books are military, have lots of action, have many descriptions of how to construct things, or have lots of sex. As a woman I may not be qualified to make this list but it seems I only see men making comments on historical fiction when these characteristics are present. Am I wrong? I'm curious to see if you other Goodreads members (of either gender) have books to add.
