I would've given 3.25 stars is fractional rating would be an option.

This is a interesting approach of an idea based on a local geopolitical conflict turning into a military conflict and where the US like the world's "police-mam" is making an intervention to correct the local situation in an attempt to put in place a fictional small nation with separatist ambitions from it's bigger mother country Brazil.

The prose is a idiotic, the plot incoherent, and the writing turgid.The characters are stock, most of the book is exposition instead of action, the premise isn't believable, and given that the real situation is on TV every day, it's easy to see that this book misses the mark.One minor blip in his research had a woman on a destroyer - accurate because there are women on destroyers, but she had the rating of Seaman First Class, something that went by the wayside on April 1, 1948 when the
