“The Last World War” by Dayton Ward

02/22/10

This was a good read although it didn’t really convey the real extent of what was happening.

A group of Kansas Marine Reservist conducting their annual two-week training at a remote training base in Kansas come into contact with real aliens. This book goes on to describe what happens to these young Marines and also some insights from the aliens.

The book didn’t really show the real consequences of what our first encounter with an alien race would be like and it cut some huge corners on our ability to communicate with a species from another world.
