4.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it.. I couldn't put it down., 12 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Invasion (Paperback)
This is a book you'll either love or hate - if you want subtle and complex characterisations this is not the place to go.
But if you want an idea of what a land war would be like in the US, this is a chilling account of a large-scale infantry war in a country not so far from home.
The book is set in the near future where technological advancements in missile technology has effectively removed aircraft and armor from the battlefield. The US and its European allies have lost control of the oceans to a huge Chinese navy. The shores of the United States suddenly become vulnerable to invasion. Both sides have invested in nuclear shields, so the war reverts back to the hard slog of combat on the ground, which is graphically described.
You might think it couldn't happen here. This book shows you what would happen if it did.
Yes, the characterisation is poor, the plot often highly contrived, but I couldn't put it down.
