It is a straight forward military action novel. The setting is at some future point where there is a world war going on, but the setting, people, and weaponry are all modern day stuff (well, even if the "tank" descriptions are of fictitious tanks, I don't think the average (non-tank-aficionado) reader would know...)
The main character is just a bit smarter, faster, stronger and luckier than your average Joe, but... then again, that is the point in this kind of novel - an otherwise normal guy saves the day by dint of his superior... everything...
There is forward momentum, people get killed (other than the main character we can't really distinguish any of them though), and the day gets saved. There is not so much a plot as there is a goal/destination. But, whatever, it is a fast easy read and pretty much exactly what you should expect from a military action novel.
It is not, however, science fiction and should not be classified as such; if you bought this expecting any science fiction (other than, perhaps, it being set in a future year), you will be disappointed. The entire story is about a group of soldiers (yes, some are convicts, but they behave exactly like the non-convicts) who enter enemy territory to destroy a target. They shoot things, they get shot at. That is it.
The narration is very good; the violence is not overly graphic and there is no sex. Some occasional swearing. I will read more by this author, but, then again, I like military action fiction...
