The first few chapters introduce you to some of the main characters and then we have the Mad Max, Death Wish section; this very nearly put me off reading any further, please persevere, while revenge is a major theme this novel is far more thoughtful than one of those tales.
Do not read this if you like your world to be PC, I saw satire and black humour, others may just see political incorrectness. There are definitely elements I feel uncomfortable with, this is not a bad thing, it makes this novel more than a tedious, gungho, revenge tale. You can take the authors statement in the forward at face value, this is a work of fiction and any parallels you make with the real world are down to you, or you can see it as a thinly veiled right wing, racist manifesto. I prefer the former and have already used it as a stimulus to read and learn about some of the subjects in this novel to make my own mind up where fiction has been inspired by reality.
This first novel was downloaded as a free Kindle purchase, I will be happy to pay for the next installment when I am ready top my reading list up again.
Heavily inspired by events of recent times, it goes into considerable depth in detailing how to build an army and the messy, bloody business of counterinsurgency warfare.
If you like your military sci fi realistic, action-packed, and unapologetically masculine, you're going to love this book.
It feels like a book of two halves with the story bouncing from post to pillar amongst the boring alternate history lessons.
The plot is a very thinly veiled rewriting of the American invasion of Iraq, a one sided and heavily "merica the free!!!!" Version of events!.
It even has its own 9/11 event with towers being hit by aircraft( did I mention thinly veiled).
Overall if you enjoy military fiction and can disassociate yourself from earthly problems it will entertain you
Very good ideas on what would happen to both planets if we ever got off earth and colonized somewhere else.
