      A remarkable story about a war that never was: a German invasion of the United States at the turn of the century. This is a fast-paced novel that explores what might have happened if Germany and the United States had tangled on American soil. The year is 1901. Imperial Germany demands that the United States surrender its newly acquired territories: Guam, Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Philippines. When President McKinley indignantly refuses, the German emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II, launches an invasion of the United States, striking first on Long Island. Chance puts a young army major, Patrick Mahan, in the catbird's seat at this critical juncture in American history. He rises quickly to the rank of brigadier general and plays a decisive role in the conflict with the Germans. Dozens of historical personages appear, including Teddy Roosevelt, James B. Longstreet and Joe Wheeler of Civil War fame, and Arthur MacArthur and his newly commissioned son Douglas.
