Could only manage a quarter of the book - too much military jargon and acronyms with only a hint of a plot building, but too much verbiage for me to hang in until it came together - thus the "Poor" rating.

Fairly readable and somewhat different from the hackneyed mantras of best sellers since the 1980s .... he gives us a Navy war overlay of WW1-like political scenario with modern players in Muslim and Pacific regions. At least it fills the role of keeping readers reading, though there's no satisfaction when the last page is turned except now you get to read something else.
