This does indeed make the film Red Dawn look like a masterpiece. In the right hands this could have been a powerful and interesting novel, but the reality is poorly delivered. It is the kind of book I would have loved when I was about thirteen when my tastes were simpler and far less sophisticated.

But anyway the cunning Chinese find a way to upset the US economy and then invade. Luckily we have hero JD (and we see his backstory that makes him the right man to stand up to the dastardly invaders)...more

Rebellion is a mix of military action and politics. John David Drury is the primary character, with an interesting story, and skills that set him up nicely for end game of the story. There's also a scattershot of politicians, but they're not nearly as interesting.

The idea behind Rebellion is an interesting one - the U.S. crumbles under its debt and struggles to rebuild, while other nations step up to fill the gap. But the places where the political maneuvering could have been tense and exciting,...more
Fans of the Johnstone Out of the Ashes series will enjoy this book. Basicly it condenses the main parts of the beginning series into one book. America has been taken over by the Chinese, and we have a war to retake America. Shufeldt manages to reclaim the US in one book as opposed to multiple in the Johnstone series.

I dont really understand the previous review left on this book. I actually enjoyed the story. I liked the characters, the premise and the use of the weaponry in a creative way.

I do think that the author glossed over political maneuverings that would have been a lot more difficult than the way that they were portrayed and relationships were way too easy.

I probably wont read the next book in the series just because its going in a direction that I dont think I will enjoy but this one was a good st...more

Interesting ,engaging, and a rousing story. Cliffhanger ending. A good political science fiction novel.

Not the easiest read, but a good book. It shows what could happen to our country and the effort to take it back. It ended with what appears to be a sequel to come.
