Invasion Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Invasion

Sometimes poorly plotted but a very original and action-packed technothriller detailing an imagined near future where China, having taken over a good two-thirds of the world, decide to challenge the only remaining threat to world domination - the USA. By means of a massive invasion of the US mainland, the Chinese forces spread across the Deep South upwards towards Washington DC. Meanwhile, a burned-out President whose defence budget cuts seem responsible, is under threat from a Chinese spy in the White House, while his daughter Stephie Roberts, the main character in the book, is fighting for her life commanding a mechanised infantry battalion being pushed north by advancing Chinese forces. The battle scenes are spectacular featuring every kind of weapon and hardware imaginable! Overall, well worth a read.
