Amazing. America, with a brief nod to China, saves the world again! Amazingly, the alien invaders ignored the rest of the world while they attacked Washington. The earth, through one man, is given advanced alien tech. They share it with the rest of the world but only China takes notice. Russia doesn’t. I can’t see Putin allowing anything getting out of his control! Europe,of course, doesn’t even get a mention. And what about Canada? At least Australia was considered able to look after itself!
Then you have the hero who always seems to get wounded severely on his right side.
The sad thing is that it holds so much promise! It could have been excellent. I really rate it at 2 1/2 stars but am rounding it up for effort. One aside: one character thought the following at one point. ‘Eddie reflected that this was probably the most sought-after weapon in all of human history: the ability to send men to battle who would obey any order, advance on any position, and throw themselves against any defense, regardless of the cost.’
The author should study the Peninsular War! Those British soldiers did just that! When they attacked a fortified town, such as Ciudad Rodriguez, they were climbing over their own dead and wounded to reach it!
