More pure military porn - from basic training shenanigans to high-level politicking. The actual invasion takes place rather late in the book, but involves some nice setpieces, including some actually touching ones, and it also starts to develop the hinted-at theme of the larger series (namely, the enemy may not be who you think it is.) This is probably even more fun if you're familiar with the regions involved - the terrain issues are very precise and obviously drawn from the author's knowledge of these landscapes.

I'm not going to mention the race and gender issues in these books, except to say they're just about as appalling as you'd expect from pulp military scifi. (They don't get really bad until Cally's War, as I recall, but they're bad enough. And don't get me started on the Tom Kratman-cowritten "the Nazis were the best!" spinoffs.)
