The U.S. teeters on the precipice…
…Chaos reigns, as enemies foreign and domestic circle like sharks.
Can any part of the Republic be saved?
Hank and his section have been reconstituted in the aftermath of the coastal fighting that has seen many—though not all—of the Chinese invaders beaten back. The plot to control the West Coast ports and a good deal of the infrastructure has failed.
But the lights are still off.
And desperation is spreading like wildfire.
America—what remains of it—has been hurt. Badly. And the Triarii are at the forefront of the efforts to try to stabilize the situation. Because the US will need some kind of stability before the external enemies that have nearly brought it to its knees can be confronted.
Fortress Doctrine is in effect.
But the Triarii are spread as thin as their allies. Hank will have to adapt quickly to a new form of warfare.
And outmaneuver enemies he doesn’t even know exist yet…
Some of you are probably already aware, as the Kindle version would have downloaded during the night. But Fortress Doctrine is live today, on Kindle and paperback.
Research for this one got into some stuff that I hadn’t done a deep-dive into since The Devil You Don’t Know. Mexico hasn’t gotten any better since then; in fact, it appears to have gotten slight more out of control. While the events of Fortress Doctrine are somewhat on the periphery of the major existing cartels and the government’s corruption (AMLO gets weirder by the day, it seems), there’s a lot going on that’s fairly true to life. (Larry Correia, Jim Curtis, and I had a conversation with Peter Orullian about it at LTUE back in February that was rather eye-opening for him. Too few people understand what’s going on down there, and the implications it has for our own national security. Unfortunately, a great deal of this ignorance is deliberate.)
