Book Note: Michael Z. Williamson, The Weapon

I read this book about 12-Sep-2006. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2005. This note was last modified Saturday, 23-Sep-2006 20:54:36 PDT.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


A Special Operations type story; the training and then the mission of one of the guys who took out lots of Earth in Freehold. One thing that bothers me is he's heavily promoting the value of brutal, abusive, training. I don't buy it, and several veterans don't buy it.

Fun superhero story, fun asymmetrical warfare story. Casualties of less than 1/3 of Earth's population (about 6 billion).

As usual, lots of shrill anti-UN rhetoric. With the UN described as a projection of the US today. Who hates America again?
