NOW AVAILABLE: CIVIL WAR TWO, CONDENSED 1-VOLUME EDITION
The United States of America are united no more.
CIVIL WAR TWO is a what-if story: What if the USA splits in two? How might a new Civil War play out?
Are we facing the end of America?
2018’s CIVIL WAR TWO was an epic of over 700 pages presented in two volumes. Now for the first time, the meat and bones of America’s future have been distilled into a single volume of concentrated force:
CIVIL WAR TWO: The Condensed One-Volume Edition.
CIVIL WAR TWO: The Novel
I worked on Civil War Two: America Elects a President Determined to Restore Religion to Public Life, and the Nation Splits for several years. It was partly born out of an interest in the history of the (first) American Civil War, in the social mechanics of battle, and how famous leaders (military and civilian) accomplished what they did: Ulysses Grant, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, etc.
In a way, CW2 is the product of a great thought experiment, drawing on my understanding of history and human behavior, asking what would happen if another civil war happened in our near future. I wanted to be realistic, rather than following any popular or idealogical notions of what “should” happen. I add dimension by transposing some parallels from the 19th Century civil war, such as the influence of charismatic leaders. For example, what might a present-day Abraham Lincoln figure be like?
