Exclamation ALWAYS FREE 1st book of epic series about West Point and the Civil War

This post was last modified: 03 Apr 2020 03:20 PM by Bob Mayer.
DUTY is permanently free. The first book in the historical series,
An epic series in the vein of HBO's Rome, following two ordinary men through extraordinary times; from West Point, through the Mexican War, and into the Civil War.

Elijah Cord and Lucius Rumble swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. They and their West Point 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.

Duty, Honor, Country is history told epic and personal so we can understand what happened, but more importantly feel the heart-wrenching clash of duty, honor, country and loyalty. And realize that sometimes, the people who changed history, weren’t recorded by it. 

The story starts in 1840, in Benny Havens tavern, just outside post limits of the United States Military Academy. William Tecumseh Sherman, Cord, and Benny Havens’ daughter come together in a crucible of honor and loyalty. On post, in the West Point stables, Ulysses S. Grant and Rumble are preparing to saddle the Hell-Beast, a horse with which Grant would eventually set an academy record. On this day, all make fateful decisions that will change the course of their lives and history. 

We follow these men forward to the eve of the Mexican War, tracing their steps at West Point and ranging to a plantation at Natchez on the Mississippi, meeting Major Robert E. Lee at Arlington, and go to Charleston, SC. We travel aboard the USS Somers and the US Navy mutiny that led to the founding of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

We end with Grant and Rumble in New Orleans, preparing to sail to Mexico and war, and Cord with Kit Carson and Fremont at Pilot Peak in Utah during his great expedition west.
