The fight for survival and liberty continues with Andrew Keane fully aware that any miscalculation in the war against the Hordes could lead to defeat, slaughter and even total annihilation.  His troops include the two Civil War regiments transplanted to this world  along with descendants of Russian, Roman and Carthaginian heritage.

The Tugars have joined with the dominant Merki, and the Hordes’ successes cause a retreat by Keane and survivors.  But Keane has a plan that may buy the humans time to recover and fight again.

A brilliant novel in a series that appeals to Civil War enthusiasts and other history buffs as well as science fiction and military adventure readers.
