Overview

(War Fiction) The original page-turner, first book in the Insurrection Series. Fast paced action! You won't be able to put it down!

Al Qaeda fulfills its promise to bring America to its knees once and for all.

Using a newly synthesized high explosive the terrorist organization destroys both the White House and the Capitol, killing the President and the entire presidential succession team, most of Congress and the whole Supreme Court during the State of the Union address.
Simultaneous terror operations destroy most of American heritage symbols, dealing a death blow to the “land of the free and the home of the brave”. The only surviving member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff grabs the reins of power and turns the USA into a military dictatorship.

Al Qaeda sleeper cells throughout the US form the Army of God despite the opposition of many American Muslims. The terror organization enters into an unholy alliance with the American dictator. So does China, which invades the West Coast states to protect its investments.

Former US Army Ranger Jude Winthrop and thousands of patriotic Americans quickly form a nation-wide resistance, incorporating US Armed Forces units that turn against the military dictatorship. Jude’s wife and their unborn baby perish in the initial terrorist attack, turning the Ranger into a insatiably vengeful killing machine for America and its freedom.

And the fight is on! A new American Civil War tears the nation apart.

About the Author

Dan Santos is a former American diplomat and US Army infantry officer. He served both in the US and overseas, during peace and during war time. He is fluent in several foreign languages, and has intensively trained in diplomatic and military skills.

American diplomatic officers like Dan work within the US intelligence community, much like their CIA counterparts. They are subject to strict discipline on what they can or cannot say. So, for many years he could not express his personal opinion about many things. When he exchanged the dusty, gray corridors of power for a public audience he gained the freedom of expression that he cherishes; and you will see that reflected in the way he writes.

His military service began at Fort Benning, Georgia, the Home of the Infantry. He was later assigned abroad, wherever the Army needed his particular skills and training. He is still not free to talk about some of the places he went and the things he did, but is very proud of his unclassified service at Wildflecken, Germany, with the 2nd Battalion, 15th Infantry, Third Infantry "Marne" Division. While in that unit, his mission was to prevent the Soviets from invading Germany, matching his tiny unit against much larger Russian organizations. He truly believes that our presence on that end of the Fulda Gap gave the Russians food for thought about invading Germany and starting World War III. He said good bye to Army service at Fort Polk, Louisiana, where he helped train other Americans to serve.

During his diplomatic service with the US Department of State Dan was stationed in Greece, Algeria, Spain, Canada, Moldova, Burkina Faso, Bolivia and Washington DC. As a Foreign Service Officer his job was to make friends for America and to prevent our country's enemies from getting the upper hand. When he was promoted to the Senior Service (equivalent to an Army general officer) he was in charge of two embassies for extended periods: one in Africa and one in South America. There he led the fight against terrorism, narco-trafficking, revolution, corruption and government brutality against the people they were supposed to serve.

Later, he opened his own company and worked in Kosovo; right after America stopped the genocidal barbarians who saw nothing wrong with killing human beings in the name of religion.
