Would the military ever initiate a coup? A secret, powerful group of West Point Graduates, known only as The Line, is going to do just that.

Publishers Weekly: “So convincing, that by the last page, readers may doubt the official version of the last 50 years.”

They killed Patton when he opposed them. They’ve cowered Presidents into going to war. For a century, a secret organization of Army officers known as The Line has been covertly manipulating US Policy. Now, in a political climate rife with dissent and unrest, The Line has ordered a pivotal top-secret operation that will let the world know who is really in charge: take out the President on Pearl Harbor Day.

But The Line didn’t count on Boomer Watson, a member of the Army’s elite Delta Force and Major Benita Trace, both West Point graduates, staying true to their oath of office and willing to fight The Line with their lives.

From The Ukraine to Pearl Harbor to West Point to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia, it’s a race against time to stop The Line as December 7th looms.

West Point graduate and Special Operations veteran, Bob Mayer, gives an insider account of just how such a scenario might unfold.

"Will leave you spellbound. Mayer’s long suit is detail, giving the reader an in-depth view of the inner workings of the Army and West Point." Book News

An epic series in the vein of HBO's Rome, following two ordinary men through extraordinary times; from West Point, through the Mexican War, into the Civil War.

Elijah Cord and Lucius Rumble swore oaths, both personal and professional. 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 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.

Our story starts in 1840, in Benny Havens tavern, just outside post limits of the United States Military Academy. With William Tecumseh Sherman, Cord, and Benny Havens’ daughter coming together in a crucible of honor and loyalty. On post, in the West Point stables, Ulysses S. Grant and Rumble are preparing to saddle the Hell-Beast, a horse with which Grant would eventually set an academy record. On this day, all make fateful decisions that will change the course of their lives and history.

We follow these men forward to the eve of the Mexican War, tracing their steps at West Point and ranging to a plantation at Natchez on the Mississippi, Major Lee at Arlington, and Charleston, SC. We travel aboard the USS Somers and the US Navy mutiny that led to the founding of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

We end with Grant and Rumble in New Orleans, preparing to sale to Mexico and war, and Cord with Kit Carson and Fremont at Pilot Peak in Utah during his great expedition west.

This is book 1 in the Duty, Honor, Country series. (Formerly titles West Point to Mexico)
