Three men, three vows: one to destroy Rome, another to protect it, a third to defeat the both of them. This is the saga of Scipio Africanus, one of history's greatest generals, and his history defining clash with Hannibal the Great and Cato the Elder. Born into a wealthy and powerful military family, Cornelius Scipio is a brilliant scholar who dreams of educating the common people of Rome. But he has promised his father he will become a soldier and defend Rome against Hannibal, its sworn enemy. Young Scipio soon finds himself fighting on two fronts: in Italia against the Carthaginians and in the Rome against Cato the Elder's austerity party. When all the veteran commanders fear to confront Hannibal and his brothers, Scipio steps forward to become Rome's boy general. Leaving his mother and betrothed to wage his political war at home, he sets forth to defeat the undefeated, relying on visionary genius to compensate for an outnumbered army of raw recruits. This is the first book in the Scipio Africanus Trilogy, based on his exploits during the Second Punic War. The second book, The Three Generals, will be out in mid-2014.

The final book of Martin Tessmer's ground-breaking saga about the rise and fall of Scipio Africanus, one of history's greatest generals. In Scipio's End, the author weaves the words and events of the ancient Republican period into a stunning story of Scipio Africanus' final years of glory and triumph.The year is 194 BCE. As he heads into his fiftieth year, Scipio has become the First Man of Rome, the most powerful citizen of the powerful Roman Republic. Though he is weary from decades of military and political wars, Scipio cannot rest. The northern Gauls have cornered the army of his fellow consul, who begs for Scipio to rescue him. Far to the west, the Army of a Hundred Nations masses to attack Rome's Grecian allies, led by the ruthless Syrian king Antiochus III and his brilliant military advisor, Hannibal the Great. As Greece falls before them, the two conquerors turn their eyes towards Italia. Only Scipio stands between them and the dissolution of the nascent Roman empire.Scipio's End is a tale of loves lost, friendships betrayed, the corruption of the incorruptible, and the triumph of honor and genius over insurmountable obstacles. Written in the historical present writing style, Scipio's End gives you the feeling that you are there in ancient Rome, witnessing history as it unfolds before your eyes. Read the final book in the series that Amazon readers have called "Brilliant," a "'Must-read," and "As good as it gets."

China is ruthless when defending her interests; think: Tiananmen Square. With her global markets under attack by terrorists and her growth slowing, China's economic future is in danger. China needs more room, more resources and more jobs. Russia's population is in precipitous decline, unable to exploit the enormous resources in Siberia, China's doorstep to central Asia. Europe is out of work and plunging into a jobless depression, and a childless - short - future. Political Islam is a gathering storm harming China's markets globally, from Europe to Africa to America. Weeks before the American Presidential election, America is attacked by terrorists, deepening China's economic problems. Joined shortly by a new, direct and forceful American President, China acts to protect and defend her interests. China is Rising.
