FREE 10/11 DUTY An Epic Novel of West Point and the Civil War

DUTY
In the vein of HBO’s Rome miniseries, two fictional characters, former West Point cadets, Lucius Rumble and Elijah Cord, are involved in the decisions at many of the major crossroads of our history.

They go from West Point, to Washington DC, through First Bull Run, the Monitor battling the Merrimac, to Grant’s initial successes at Forts Henry and Donelson. We arrive on the precipice of failure as Grant’s army is routed on the first day of the battle of Shiloh and sits in the rain, under an oak treat, contemplating retreat.

They swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. Classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle. They had friendships, memories, children and wives. They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Praise for Mayer's war fiction: 
Stephen Coonts: “A scorcher of a novel!”
WEB Griffin: “Exciting & Authentic!”
