Description

The 7th novel in the best-selling Lost Regiment series.

Warfare has changed on this strange world (to which a ship carrying two Civil War regiments) was transported from Earth.  In their ongoing fight against enslavement inflicted on all human societies by the terrifying 9 ft. tall nomadic Hordes, Lieutenant Andrew Keane has allied his Union troops with descendants of medieval Russians and ancient Romans.  But the Hordes’ weapons and technology are now more advanced, following the recent arrival of three members of the Bantag Horde via the mysterious “tunnel of light”.  Once again the human armies under Andrew Keane must fight to keep the Hordes from recapturing the liberated human cities.  The latest attack comes during a bitterly cold winter, and it will take every ounce of ingenuity and courage for Keane’s army to counter the Hordes’ brutal assault. 

Military fiction at its best.
