Of course soldier was obsessed with sex with five years of total war.
Sure, he had trouble making smokeless gunpowder, adjust to Medieval setting & magic or needing help making grenades with black gunpowder because he was a high tech specialist not a generalist.
Cute fast scene on how he got transported to different dimension or how unlikely trigger happy Soviets duplicate results.
Kudos on author on using unlikely protagonist.

IF this work is meant as juvenile fiction, like much of Heinlein's, I can be more forgiving of its shortcomings.

Failing that, I found the story adequate but pedestrian, without any surprises, and the writing was competent but repetitive.

The supporting characters were enjoyable enough, but the protagonist was unbelievably dim-witted for an experienced soldier in his thirties, and bizarrely obsessed with sex.

The protagonists's journey toward "racial enlightenment" is tedious & blunt.
