Forced to endure a brutal defeat at the hands of an alien invasion over and over in a time loop, a military commander slowly discerns a way to gain the upper hand.

ABSTRACT
Earth falls victim to a most unexpected and vicious onslaught of alien invaders, losing in short order to an extraterrestrial juggernaut seemingly capable of defeating the combined efforts of the world's armed forces with ease. William Cage, an American military officer suited to desk duty, is sent into an operation against the invaders in which he is quickly eliminated; caught in an inexplicable time loop forcing him to act out his fated mission over and over again alongside Special Forces agent Rita Vrataski, William slowly learns to pick apart the alien force's weaknesses, coming ever closer to an unlikely victory for humanity with each successive defeat.
