The Second Civil War is here.
The radical and Constitution-defying measures of the President have forced those who would defend liberty to resort to extreme measures. Now there are two governments of the United States: one which controls Washington, DC and most of the coasts and another, this one based out of Colorado, that controls much of what lies between.
Blood has already been shed. The President in Washington, Kevin Bryan, tried to crush the Rebels by importing tens of thousands of foreign soldiers and throwing them westwards in an all-out effort to end the rebellion at a blow. Instead, the government in Colorado, under the command of the former Speaker of the House, managed to throw back the forces of the government after a pitched battle that raged across Kansas and Colorado before ending at Pueblo.
Continuing the story of the Second Civil War, as begun in “A House Divided” and extended in “The Fiery Trial”, “Shall Not Perish” tells an all-too-plausible story of a desperate struggle for liberty waged by those people, both ordinary and extraordinary, who are willing to give all to defend freedom.
In “The Blast of War”, “A Land War in Asia”, and “A Thousand Points of Light”, Adam Yoshida told the story of how today’s regional conflicts, if left unchecked, could spiral into a Third World War. Now, with “A House Divided”, Adam Yoshida begins a new series where the present lassitude of the West leads inevitably to a Second Civil War.
In “A House Divided”, the United States is set on a road that will lead inevitably to war, as foreign events bring the country to the edge of bankruptcy and a degenerate President tramples upon the Constitution in a desperate effort to maintain his political standing.
Meanwhile, to the north, the same economic pressures that are driving America towards a deadly rendezvous with destiny blow apart the more-fragile Canadian federation, providing a preview of the carnage that awaits Americans if war cannot be avoided. Elsewhere, in America itself, the atmosphere of tension drives deranged men to dangerous acts of fanaticism that threaten to bring on the cataclysm that they seek to avoid.
There are disparate and desperate patriots determined to save America, but can their ambitions be reconciled with love of country or is the American republic as doomed as the Roman one before it?
With “A House Divided”, Adam Yoshida launches a new series that seeks to explore what could trigger a Second Civil War, how it would be fought, and what the final result would be.
Is the United States headed towards a Second Civil War?
“A House Divided” laid out how current political trends might lead to a Second Civil War. In “The Fiery Trial”, the war actually begins.
It’s the Makers versus the Takers as an over-reaching Federal Government abuses the Constitution to attempt to maintain the power of the establishment and keep the dollars flowing to the welfare state at all costs. In their quest to maintain their power, there is no rule that the powers-that-be will not flout and break, no line that they will not cross.
Faced with this, defenders of liberty are left with a stark choice: will they passively accept the death of freedom in America (and ultimately in the world)? If not, how far will they they go in order to defend the Constitution?
Filled with political intrigue, subterfuge, and battles between armies and wits, “The Fiery Trial” is a timely warning of an all-too-possible future.
“The Second Civil War: From Vancouver to Pueblo” collects both “A House Divided” and “The Fiery Trial” into a single volume, telling the story of the Second Civil War, beginning with the Canadian Civil War and American political manoeuvring that precede the war leading up to the commencement of actual hostilities.
Meet the XM-800A. It’s a merciless military robot that can fire an anti-material rifle without flinching and, if necessary, break a man in half. Some people believe that it’s the future of war. Others are afraid that they might be right.
Robot General is the story of Malcolm Lloyd Howard, an officer in the United States Army and a military maverick in the tradition of Billy Mitchell, Hyman Rickover, John Boyd, and Bernard Schriever. Howard’s belief is that the mass deployment of unmanned systems and cyber-weapons marks a new epoch in the history of warfare, and he’s prepared to fight every bureaucrat in the Pentagon and Congress in order to make that happen.
The world is waiting for Howard’s weapons as, from downtown Shanghai to the streets of Paris and on the plains of South Africa, a new age of unmanned warfare is ready to commence.
“The Blast of War” told the devastating story of how the continuation of present-day political trends could spin out of control and plunge the world into war.
In “A Land War in Asia”, the story continued as the United States, under a new President, found itself inexorably drawn into the Third World War just as it once was the first two and the American military soon found itself called to face fierce and deadly new Chinese weapons in a struggle across multiple continents and oceans.
And, in “A Thousand Points of Light”, the tale of World War Three came to a fiery conclusion as the American-led Grand Alliance and the Chinese-led United Nations fought eachother to the last in a global fight to the death that saw unthinkable weapons used and millions killed.
Now, for the first time, all three volumes of “The Third World War: A Narrative History” have been consolidated into a single volume.
After two years, the war between the American-led Allies and the Chinese-led United Nations has settled into a bloody stalemate. China has defeated Russia and driven India to the brink, while the United States and the rest of the Grand Alliance has swept China from the seas and gained superiority in the air. The war has now become a test of Chinese material endurance versus American moral will.
President Alexander Harris will never accept anything less than total victory: but can he maintain the support of the American people long enough to attain it?
China’s leaders know that defeat will mean the end of their power and, quite probably, their lives: but can they convince their enemies to quit the fight now instead of waiting for the completion of next-generation weapons systems that will ensure the defeat of the Chinese?
In “A Thousand Points of Light”, the war that began in “The Blast of War” and continued in “A Land War in Asia” comes to an astonishing conclusion as both sides fight on through almost unimaginable horror in the pursuit of victory.
Russia has been shattered. Its armies, saved from total annihilation only by a desperate resort to nuclear weapons, have fallen back in the face of an otherwise-unstoppable Chinese advance. India, devastated by a nuclear assault, turns against the nation it believes is ultimately responsible for the attack. Taiwan, its navy and air force destroyed, is fighting block-by-block to defend its cities from the invading People’s Liberation Army.
With the rest of the world either unwilling to unable to join the conflict, the only hope of free people everywhere is that the United States, despite economic disaster and years of domestic disorder, can rally the English-speaking peoples to advance to the defense of liberty once again.
The fight will not be easy. In order to survive the Allies will need a leader who rejects everything that entire generations of mentally-fossilized leaders in the West have stood have. In Washington, there is such a man.
I come before you today,” says President Alexander Harris to the Congress, “to ask only that you vote for war not to end all wars, but to end this war and to restore peace to the world.”
In “The Blast of War”, Adam Yoshida told the story of how present world conditions — if they were allowed to deteriorate further — might lead us towards a Third World War. Now, in “A Land War in Asia”, he imagines just what such a terrible conflict might entail, as China and the Allies trade mighty blows, Chinese hackers and diplomats seek any small advantage they might gain, and American soldiers, sailors, and airmen are asked to take aged equipment to fight battles in places they never even though they’d see, let alone go to war in.
The inimitable Mark Steyn has warned all of us in his book After America that, without American power we will likely see, “social collapse and a planet with no global order.” In “The Blast of War”, Adam Yoshida imagines what might result from a world without American leadership.
In the tradition of General Sir John Hackett’s The Third World War: August 1985 (and perhaps a little in that of Max Brooks’ World War Z), The Blast of War is a cautionary tale: a future history of a terrible war that all of us may be living through someday soon if everything keeps going the way that it has been.
Epic in scope, “The Blast of War” features a world in dissolution. Impeachments, coups, and revolutions abound as the United States, Mexico, Greece, Britain, Belgium, Turkey, China, Holland, India, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Germany, France, Israel, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, and others find themselves sucked into the vortex of war.
The first volume in the “The Third World War: A Narrative History” trilogy, The Blast of War features battles on the land, sea, and air — along with nuclear weapons and interminable internecine strife as the world attempts to unwind the mess that we’re all in.
