A romp riddled with errors

While this is a good action, slam-bang roller coaster sic-fi fantasy ride, it is so riddled with technical errors on military gear, historic figures and common sense that it gives this reader pause to wonder why the writer emphasized it was technically correct at the start of the book.

Examples: Admiral Mahan is mentioned as a Revolutionary War era admiral which he was not; the AK-47 is derided as a piece of junk; and any "sailor" at sea would lash themselves down with a length of rope, not a heavy chain in the face of a tidal wave.

Luckily for less well informed readers you can skip over those logic errors and some ham-handed over the top melodramatic scenes and enjoy the ride.
