Due to a mysterious transcendent being, United States Marine Corps First Lieutenant Samuel Kim from the year 2016 is thrown back in time to the year 1775. To make matters worse, he wakes up near Bunker Hill, mere hours before the famed Battle of Bunker Hill is set to begin. Realizing the unique situation he finds himself in, the lieutenant takes the opportunity to change the fate of the battle and ensure an overwhelming American victory. Guided by his "patronizing" "God" and the American revolutionaries, Lieutenant Kim embarks on a journey to help America gain its independence and to ensure the nation uphold its "most promising" ideals from the very beginning.

 Really has some potential but I wished the author hadn't leaned into the whole "god" giving out everything he needs angle but it still was an enjoyable read.

As stayed in the title, it’s somewhat cheesy in the first chapter or so, but it still holds up.

I’ve often wondered what the impact of a single modern soldier would be on the outcome of the revolutionary war. In this story, I can find out.

Keep up the good work. Don't drop this novel also a timely  novel on what happening in usa today. 

  • Overall Score

A truly enjoyable read, a sort of  alternate historical fiction where, as the name says, a marine officer goes back in time, the story goes into enough detail to place you in the moment, without so much to feel like a history book. 

While the story is a bit fantastical, the "magical" elements are kept to occasional "supply drops" by the diety/benefactor and otherwise limited to narrative flavor such as
