The WAR! sourcebook (http://www.shadowruntabletop.com/products-page/deep-shadows-sourcebooks/war/) from previous edition is the resource you are looking for. It talks specifically about a wartime campaign.

The mercs and soldiers in there are pretty good actually. Heck the Expeditionary Soldier is a good one to use as a base for a former military character to get an idea of what skills and attributes you need and such (there's one attribute that needs to go up by 1 though if I remember right, so he's at least average in it).
