A book that is hard to put down
« on: March 25, 2018, 01:57:36 PM »
Guys  do you read military science fiction? This is a Very good book. You won’t be able to put it down.  It took me about just 10 days  to finish the four books. I am so glad I found it. It is a series up to books 4 only. I rated it 5 star on amazon book review and good read.
I highly recommended it!

Intersting plot. Almost sounds like he became another world’s Merlin. Since the author is former SF, did he set out to look for his King Arthur?

No Merlin and other magical kingdom stuff. The man was an ordinary and a bit pudgy chemist.who likes call of duty and strategy video games. He was put in a planet that is very much like Earth where the people are originally from Earth but their  technology is similar to the year 1700 on earth. It is Eurocentric and feudal. He introduces a technology not by inventing it but by describing it to his people and with a technology that is available at the time or within that period's industrial and technological base. For example he introduces the Guano as fertilizer because of the abundance of bats and the high chair so that babies can sit  beside their parents in the dining room, franchising a business and cuisine from earth.The action is the best. The small island where the ordinary Joe nobody guy now live,  is living in fear and desperation because an enemy similar to the  British imperialist with the  NAZI like brutality are threatening to invade the whole island. Enter the hero who could not even stomach to kill a chicken. His military strategy, tactics and logistic suggestion  to the islanders are just very practical that any ordinary man on earth with above intelligence can think off.
