By the author of breakout WW II era alternate history Himmler's War and Rising Sun, comes a compelling, alternate history thriller! Consider another 1920: Imperial Germany has become the most powerful nation in the world. In 1914, she had crushed England, France, and Russia in a war that was short but entirely devastating. By 1920, Kaiser Wilhelm II is looking for new lands to devour. The United States is fast becoming an economic super-power and the only nation that can conceivably threaten Germany. The U.S. is militarily inept, however, led by a sick and delusional president who wanted to avoid war at any price. Thus, Germany ships a huge army to Mexico to support a puppet government. Her real goal: the invasion and permanent conquest of California and Texas! America desperately resists the mightiest and most brutal army in the world in a battle fought on land, at sea, and in the air as enemy armies savagely march up on California, and move north towards a second Battle of the Alamo. Only the indomitable spirit of freedom can answer the Kaiser's challenge!
