The Invasion of Texas-1915!

In Europe, men were dying in trenches. In Washington, sentiment was growing for war against the Kaiser. And in Mexico, an explosive plot was set in motion by a German agent, a deposed dictator, and an army of murderous rebels. Amidst the chaos of Pancho Villa's revolution, a force of embittered Tejanos has crossed the Rio Grande, burning ranches, killing Texans, and gathering fighters in its wake. For the Germans, the goal was to paralyze America. For a daring Special Agent and a Texas Ranger, the mission was to go deep behind enemy lines and cut out the heart of an astounding conspiracy-before the West was drawn into a bloody war of its own...

Based on actual historical events, The Warlords is an epic adventure from our finest chronicler of the American frontier.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One
Berlin was at its most pleasant in early spring. The snows of winter were gone and a riotous profusion of flowers lined the paths of the Rosengarten. Strollers paused to stare at the imposing marble statue of Empress Auguste Viktoria.
Not far away the bridle paths of the Tiergarten wound through stately copses of oak and hemlock. Officers of the German General Staff were out for their morning ride, cantering past with the rhythmic click of shod hooves on packed earth. The silver spikes on the crown of their helmets glinted beneath a warm May sun.

About the Author

Matt Braun

Matt Braun is a fourth generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

Braun is the author of forty-four novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids.
