Foreword by Admiral Sir John Woodward. When published in hardcover in 1997, this book was praised for providing an engrossing education not only in naval strategy and tactics but in Victorian social attitudes and the influence of character on history. In juxtaposing an operational with a cultural theme, the author comes closer than any historian yet to explaining what was behind the often described operations of this famous 1916 battle at Jutland. Although the British fleet was victorious over the Germans, the cost in ships and men was high, and debates have raged within British naval circles ever since about why the Royal Navy was unable to take advantage of the situation. In this book Andrew Gordon focuses on what he calls a fault-line between two incompatible styles of tactical leadership within the Royal Navy and different understandings of the rules of the games.

Ranked #1 in Science Fiction > Adventure on the Amazon Kindle Store, Jan. 5 and 12, 2013, and #1 in Science Fiction > Alternative History Jan 12, 2013 The stunning dystopian fantasy debut! What reviewers are saying: "A world that oozes dystopian desperation." "Running Man meets The Matrix." "Wow! Isaac Hooke can write!" The cityscape looked almost unreal at this height. It was like Hoodwink stood again beside the vendor with her miniature replicas and maps of the city. True, this was far more detailed than any map he'd ever seen, but the illusion of perception made the city seem much closer, like he could just reach out and pick it up. But then his eyes focused on the whirling snow closer at hand, those flakes descending from the heights like an endless vortex of doom, and the reality of what he saw hit him. He felt suddenly nauseous, and dizzy. The duffel bag abruptly slid down his shoulder. He let go of the rope with that hand and caught the bag in the crook of his forearm. Two bundles of salted meat tumbled free and spun away on the breeze as the upper winds picked them up. Entranced, he watched the bundles fall. The fingers that gripped the rope began to slip... Synopsis: 3740 A.D. The ice age has immobilized the world. Colossal walls seal off the cities from the uninhabitable Outside. Humanlike entities called "gols" run society, and force the humans to wear collars that block the innate powers mankind has evolved. One man rises up... "Twists and turns, super-human feats, and close-calls abound -- everything a good science-fantasy story should have." "Kept me up until 2 a.m. because I couldn't put it down." Join Hoodwink in this tale of dystopian fantasy and experience the thrill-ride. Pick up the paperback or download the Kindle edition today!
