hours is sections of landscaping which has no bearing on the story. Drudgery. Characters are a little silly, Riser, the 10,000 year old 12 year old boy. I think I'm going to get a refund on this one.

This writer has not sit down with any military Commander. He has no idea how planning sessions go. He creates constant and uncharacteristic ideas of how things work. A leader generally does not make all his own plans, and he dies not keep his staff in the dark. It's counterproductive and reeks of a dictator rather than an actual leader. I'm trying to get through this series if only learning how not to write. Sadly, I like this idea but execution is poor.  Clearly Riggs has an ego the size of the milky way, and can't stand Meklos, someone who in reality has far better military tactics and design. Riggs appears weak and aftraid of Meklos' competence and Riggs' incompetent action. He should have died with Sandra. Hahaha

the writer is managed to make rigs into a mini dictator. he gives conflicting orders in the same sentence again and again. But repeats himself again and again about something he's already stated in the book. It's getting a little tiresome. it's an intriguing idea but it's not well executed. he really needs to learn military terms. CAP pronounced "cap" also is excellent for ground support operations. it is silly to say air assets cannot be used against ground elements.

I should really like BV Larson but he's really lost in here. a girlfriend on a military Expedition would create morale issues among the men. this guy just keeps making up impossible situations. this is not a good thing. he really needs to have a military advisor.

This writer seems to spend half his time talking down previous accounts of the battles of the Pusan Perimeter. Really very discouraging. can't finish, getting refund.

Prefer hearing first hand account not a reporters. Narrator does not know how to say Vietnamese. Can't listen anymore.

Lots of logic issues, such as stabilizer not working and still flying a successful air strike. Wait, what? Mumbossa is a super hero! Flying across gaps, finding the only spot on the outside of a warship NOT armored... ugh, too many super feats to suspend disbelief. All the bad guys gotta do is send mubossa with Kat flying to the republic as a missed and bam! game over. baaahhh.

Was interesting to hear the manufacturered conspiracy theories played out in her rendition of the Wall Street game. But now the completely exposed Russia collusion lie that was fabricated by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic national party seems to be all but a foregone conclusion in this person's mind. Which tells me that she is not so much informing as she is indoctrinating. Reading this book was almost like being given a shot of morphine I could feel my mind going numb and rationality leaving me.

This book breaks so many laws that it's absolutely ridiculous; the law of thermodynamics the law of conservation of energy, all of them. also some of the vulgarity with regards to Jesus Christ is very hard to listen to. constantly active zombies would burn through their muscle mass in no time since they have no way to replenish it and a fast moving turmoil storm of zombies would dissipate in virtually no time not to mention the fact that would take over the entire population of the North and South America to make a zombie storm. it really looks like these guys are just ignoring huge holes in their story. to reach out from a wheel on a Seahawk helicopter to the barrel of the gun is impossible you'd have to a wingspan of over 10 feet plus everybody left in the entire world are battle-hardened veterans not screaming 12 year old girls afraid of zombies. I just can't read this book it's just too bad I tried I really tried but I can't. I try to read these silly zombie stories but they never work out at some point I always have to stop it would be really nice if someone could come up with a decently written logical zombie type story, but this certainly is not it.
