i agree that maybe this book was a bit unfinished, but where's your sense of imagination. Plus if you thought that the idea of kids being millitary minds was such a far fetched idea then why did you even continue reading Enders Game

The idea of kids being ''military minds'' made sense in the first book, where the notion was to create strategic planners and fighters that are not encumbered by the history of surface/land wars, and grew up to the notion of war in 3D space (this in fact was the core of the original short story, Ender's Game). It makes zero sense to use these kids as strategic geniuses for land war all of a sudden.
