Two neighboring nations, the Kingdom of Velecia and the Republic of Debye, have been in feud for over a century, fighting for the Property Trade Route through the natural land bridge in Volgo-Don. Whoever controls the Property Trade Route controls all taxation rights. Unfortunately, the battles have left Volgo-Don in ruins. Civility needed to be restored, and in doing so, an agency needed to be created. Order and law would come into place with the help of the peacekeeper Agents of FISTT (Final Investigation, Survival, and Termination Tactics). It was their sole duty to contain the war from spreading past Volgo-Don. Yet, in the midst of the conflict, FISTT must also investigate the prophecy of the Anti-Goddess. They must stop the mass-murdering sociopath that was known only as the Val-Kyrie. This is where the Record of Val-Kyrie begins--

The Czar's Last Soldier is the story of the search for the Star of Golconda a 42.5-carat diamond slightly smaller than the Hope diamond. Before he was killed, a marine buried the diamond in his foxhole on the island of Corregidor during World War II. Thirty-two years later, at a Nebraska post office, Sam Gibbons and Roscoe Barnes are removing the old post office boxes and replacing them with new ones. Both men are World War II veterans who teamed up as general contractors after the war. When the old post office boxes are removed a letter hidden between warped boards falls to the floor. The letter, dated 1942, is from the marine who died on Corregidor and gives the particulars of a jewel theft he committed at the Shanghai Officer's Club in 1941. As there are no members of the marine's family still alive, they read the letter. Shortly after the theft, the marine's regiment was transferred from China to the Philippines. After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the regiment was tasked to defend Corregidor. When the order to surrender was given, not wanting the Japanese to gloom onto the stolen jewels, the marine buried them. Sam and Roscoe hunt for the jewels but are unaware they were stolen from a czarist officer and are thrust into the middle of an international legal battle.

They Fought Valiantly for Their Country’s Survival contains the personal accounts of South Korean soldiers and marines who fought for the survival of their country following the North Korean sneak attack on South Korea that was the start of the Korean War 25 June 1950–27 July 1953. Inasmuch as a ceasefire or cessation of hostilities was signed at Panmunjom on 27 July 1953 and the shooting stopped, the Korean War remains very much in the forefront of world news as a declaration of peace has not been signed as the 2.5-mile wide demilitarized zone between the two Koreas attests in stark, menacing evidence. The accounts that are contained within this book are real and reveal in clear prose the devastation, the pain, the agony, the danger, the fear, the betrayal, distress, wounds, death, turmoil, separation, and love of family that was the constant with these South Koreans as they stood in the forefront and stopped the evil known as communism and set in place the seed that culminated in the tearing down of the Berlin Wall a few decades later. The South Koreans who fought valiantly during the thirty-seven-month Korean War, stopped the spread of communism in the Far East. Truly, theirs was a heroic stand that the free world can applaud today.
