NOTE: A couple bits of information appear to be useful based on the first 60 or so reviews. First. Yes, it’s written in the first person, which bothers some folks in this genre, but I thought it necessary since it’s a mystery being solved and this way you get the same info she gets to figure it out. It is, as many have pointed out, unlike 99% of alien invasion stories. Second, Katana is not Spruance, or Nimitz, or Halsey or any modern Navy commander. She is based on Steven Decatur, late 1700s US frigate captain. Youngest captain in US Navy history, one of only 53 people ever to have a portrait appear on US currency, namesake of an Arleigh Burke destroyer. When the USS Philadelphia was captured in Tripoli, he planned, executed, and personally led a special ops mission to destroy her (which earned him the utter respect of Horatio Nelson). When his brother was killed, he planned, executed, and led a special ops mission during which, outnumbered better than 5 to 1, he still managed to personally kill the enemy ship captain and escape. He was sent by Thomas Jefferson to negotiate treaties with foreign governments, which he usually did through expeditious use of his cannons. No modern commander would act that way, but Katana’s soul is 700 years old.
The ships in this book are generally either (a) revolutionary war battles or (b) associated with the first six frigates of the US Navy (Congress, Constitution, Decatur, Bainbridge, Truxton). This is a topsails and mainsails with nuclear warheads and laser cannons book, not a gas turbine book.
