Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Twenty-three men - a War Syndicate - offer to assume the expense of a war for the United States after a gunfight erupts between two vessels off the Canadian coast.

Phoghat

A sort of alternate history where a syndicate of businessmen, captains of industry, take on a war between the US and the UK around the turn of the 20th century. Fascinating read.
