The author takes factual historical tidbits and tucks them into the story as guideposts so that his fiction never strays too far beyond the bounds of believability.
The alien invader's culture is interesting. The obligatory love story lines are distracting.
The German's use of a railway gun to fight a highly advanced opponent.
No. In the end it is simply a story of a more advanced species attacking a less advanced one and getting a bloody nose for their hubris.
The author uses graphic sex scenes to indulge his own fantasies. They are unnecessary and repetitive. It seems that all of the main characters end up having sex at least several times each throughout the book. That is, except for the faithful scientist.
