Solitudinum faciunt; pacem appellant (They made a desert and called it peace)—Tacitus Five hundred years in the future, the Federated States of Columbia rise against the oppression of Earth's corrupt Caliphate. Now Salafi madmen bent on a new jihad kill one soldier's family in a cowardly attack. In the fires of horror, a legendary warrior is born: Carrera, the scourge of Salafism. He will forge an army. He will destroy those who killed his family. And he will try like hell to not becoming exactly like the enemy he is fighting. Only when he is finished will there be peace: the peace of an empty wind as it blows across a desert strewn with the bones of Carrera's enemies. U.S. Army veteran, attorney, and two-time John-Ringo-collaborator Tom Kratman delivers a thought-provoking, action-packed novel of groundbreaking military and political science fiction.
