In the not too distant future, with the United States in political and economic decline, one hundred elite American soldiers mutiny to save the world's last bastion of vibrant freedom from the expansionist People's Republic of China. The year is 2029. The United States has declined under the weight of political and economic stagnation. China, beset by internal political unrest, invades its old breakaway province, Taiwan, which has become the world's freest and most technologically advanced society. The United States, Taiwan's historic ally, sends the Knights, a secret American special forces unit, to slow the Chinese onslaught and allow the President time to marshal American military and diplomatic power to save the beleaguered democracy. When the President caves in to Chinese economic threats and recalls the Knights, they mutiny. Dramatically outnumbered and cut off from any outside aid, the Knights use skill, cunning, and audacity to fight their desperate battle against Chinese forces and inspire the American public to come to Taiwan's rescue. Stand of Knights is an original geopolitical thriller for the 21st century with high-tech action, breathtaking scale, and an uplifting story. It is the first installment of a series that will tell the entire story of the China-Taiwan War.
