On the beach behind the Holbech place, he finds signs that someone came ashore on the last high tide. Tracks lead to a pile of driftwood where Black Dog noses out the family's wounded dog.
Putting his ear to the Hoko grapevine, he hears of a break-in at the local gravel quarry, where explosives and detonators were taken. A neighbor's grandchild mentions a missing school janitor, and the name her classmates gave him, Aladdin. When the Major takes a sneak and peek he unearths a terrorist sleeper.
Calling in the troops, he prepares to do battle deep in the Olympic Peninsula wilderness where a cadre of evil souls have gathered, intent on creating havoc with the Washington State's ferries.
HONOR DEFENDED occurs over one 24 hour period of heart-pounding action in which old friends are met, new ones made, the young must grow up fast as lives are broken, and the honor of a War Brother is defended.

The Major is big is the second installment of the series, A Citizen Warrior Novel. The first book of the series, Honor Due introduced readers to The Major, an extraordinary hero. Once again the setting is the wilderness of Washington state.
The Major received a distress call from an old friend and Viet Nam veteran. The man and his family were under attacked. Someone burned down his sister's house, murdered her husband and kidnapped her. Soon the Major uncovers a conspiracy. Were terrorist once again targeting America?
DH Brown does it again. He creates a plot that is an action packed thriller, yet believable. The Major is back in action. I fell in love with the Major in Book 1 of this series Honor Due. He just keeps getting better. I wonder how much of the Major is based on the author.

The Major is back in book two of the Citizen Warrior Series, "HONOR
DEFENDED." As we learned from HONOR DUE, the Major is a kindhearted,
caring, family man. He is also the Vietnam vet who will not allow
anything to cross his path when it comes to hurting innocent citizens,
especially his friends, and family. While still mourning the death of
one of his War Brothers, he receives notification of a horrifying murder
and kidnapping involving a friend. Carmen was kidnapped, and her husband
who was an American soldier and home from Iraq was beheaded, then their
home was set on fire. The major calls in his troops, and begins the
investigation. Does Carmen return to safety, and where is her vehicle?
How is it possible that twelve terrorists wind up in someone's backyard,
why was it that easy? How many battles and interrogations will the Major
face? Do the Major's Warriors seek revenge, and is justice served? Embrace
yourself, put on your seatbelt, and enjoy the greatest thrill ride you've
ever endured! The setting in the great NorthWest is perfect for the
action-packed adventure to take place, the story is engrossing, and the
characters come to life once again. I recommend this novel to all mystery
lovers who enjoy thrillers, with humor, and compassion. The plot consists
of hard-hitting action, and is emotional, and heartwarming. When the Major
realizes that the crime committed was no random act of violence, the
fireworks begin, tension is at its highest peak, and the adrenaline is
flowing. The bond between the Warriors is stronger than ever as
excitement explodes, while the hunt begins. D.H. Brown penned an
incredible breathtaking adventure as his Masterpiece becomes a tribute
to Vietnam vets. "HONOR DEFENDED"" is as compelling as Steven Spielberg's
"SAVING PRIVATE RYAN" with Tom Hanks!

What would people do if the terrorists brought their war to the U.S. soil, and there were ex-soldiers in the same area? Are soldiers ever truly Ex-Soldiers? This is the premise of this work of fiction, or is it fiction?
The Major calls in some friends, called War Brothers, to help him rescue a woman. The woman is a family friend, and the Major finds out information about terrorist cells in his neck of the Pacific Northwest woods. When the Major contacts people to help him, they is no question, they answer the call.
This reviewer found the story compelling and hard to put down. For those readers that are not into things that soldiers do, and the actions they take, might not like this book. You will be making a mistake. This is an engrossing story. The characters and the story are true and believable. This is a story more about friendship and family then it is about war and battles. Yes, there are battles and interrogations of suspected terrorists found by accident in someone's own backyard. This book holds a high recommendation from this reviewer.

I Also Recommend:
HONOR DEFENDED picks up right where HONOR DUE, Brown's first award-winning book, left off. Barely settled in after avenging the death of his War Brother, Major Westfall is once again called upon for help when his neighbor's sister is missing. The Major, always ready to help a friend, rushes to her home to find it on fire, with her husband decapitated on the floor. He quickly finds out that this was no random act of violence, and that terrorists may literally be in his own backyard. What follows is a non-stop whirlwind of excitement as the Major dusts off his Special Forces skills, and along with some other operators, goes forth to pursue a type of justice that above the typical court system.
D. H. Brown has a gift for story telling. His stories are written first person, enabling him to use his own experiences seamlessly through the action. This creates a character depth that most authors can't seem to find. Regardless of your feelings about warriors, war, or special operators in particular, you can't help but love the Major. His sometimes cold, been-there, done-that exterior parts every so often to show true emotion and humor that is the basis for the bond between warriors. Even more than his first book, I just couldn't wait to turn the page, and from page 3 on could not put this one down. I was honestly sorry when it ended!
Exciting, gripping, and well-written, this one is a keeper for Vietnam vets, special forces operators, or those that love a good action narrative told in first person. Very highly recommended.
