Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kratman (A Desert Called Peace) raises some disquieting questions about what it might take to win the war on terror in this military SF novel set in a future world with obvious parallels to our own. When Salafi fanatics launch a 9/11-style attack on the hated Federated States of Columbia, they end up killing the family of Col. Patricio Carrera. Carrera vows to destroy Salafism by any means necessary and raises an army in his wife's native land to provide that means. He takes the fight to Pashtia, where the planners of his family's doom are cowering. This disturbing but insightful narrative takes Nietzsche's aphorism about staring into the abyss and runs with it to its grim conclusion. As always, Kratman delights in offending left-wing sensibilities, but this will only enhance its appeal to his target audience, who will enjoy it for its realistic action sequences, strong characterizations and thoughts on the philosophy of war. (Nov.) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Tom Kratzman was born in Boston and enlist at 17 years old in the US Army. He served with the 101st Airborne division and in Panama with the 193rd Infantry Brigade. He then went on to Boson College on an Army scholarship. Following his graduation, Kratzman was commissioned as an officer in 1980 whereupon he spent three more years in Panama followed by a four-year stint with the 24th Infantry Division. He was then part of the United States Army Recruiting Command, before serving with the 5th Special Forces Group during the Gulf War.

Kratzman left the regular army in 1992, and went to law school. He earned his juris doctorate in 1995, but remained a member of the United States Army Reserve and also worked for MPRI. He was recalled to the Army in 2003 for the Iraq War but was found to have a heart problem. He then spent time at the U.S. Army War College as Director, Rule of Law, for the Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute. Kratzman retired in 2006 as a Lieutenant Colonel and became a full-time author.
