Duty, Honor, Country, A Novel of West Point & The Civil War

Coming 12 April 2011.

They swore oaths, both personal and professional.  From the Plain at West Point, through the Mexican War, to the carnage of Shiloh.  They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. Classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle.  They had friendships, memories, children and wives.  They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Duty, Honor, Country is history told both epic and personal so we can understand what happened, but more importantly feel the heart-wrenching clash of duty, honor, country and loyalty.  And realize that sometimes, the people who changed history, weren’t recorded by it.

Reviews for Mayer’s books:

“Exciting and authentic.   Don’t miss this one.”  W.E.B. Griffin

“Mayer had me hooked from the very first page.”  Stephen Coonts

“Fascinating, imaginative and nerve-wracking.”  Kirkus Reviews

“Will leave you spellbound.”  Book News

“Mayer has established himself as one of today’s better military writers.  A background in Special Operations gives him credibility and understanding from having been there and done that.”  Airpower Journal

“A treat for military fiction readers.”  Publishers Weekly
