Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former infantry officer Kratman continues the story where his previous book, A Desert Called Peace, left off: Patrick Carrera has destroyed the Salafi Ikhwan terrorists that murdered his family, but it is a hollow victory. Wracked by guilt and afraid that he is becoming the monster his enemies accuse him of being, he begins to neglect his responsibilities as leader of the Legion del Cid, the military force that is transforming his adopted home of Balboa into a prosperous timocratic republic. Unfortunately, enemies still linger. The remainder of the corrupt former regime still festers, protected by forces of the Tauran Union, who themselves hate Carrera for exposing the hollowness of their own principals-and then there are the narco-traffickers who will stop at nothing to reopen their smuggling routes. Kratman offers a narrative that raises questions about the nature of honor and a just society and will undoubtedly cause some to foam at the mouth, and others to applaud.

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.
