Friday Selection: Dark Horse
The Cheops Books LLC Friday Selection this week is Dark Horse, an Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel about the election of 1940. What would happen if Hitler won the Battle of Dunkirk? Colonel Sir Edward Ware is about to find out when Rommel pushes him off the French beach with all his troops and then beats him to Britain in 1940. At the Republican Convention of 1940 in Philadelphia a dark horse candidate is being selected with plenty of Nazi involvement. What can Edward and Churchill do to avoid the straight arm salute in this alternative history thriller?
Dark Horse is book five of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series.
Here are some early reader comments: Do you have anything to add?
1)A very awesome book cover December 12, 2016
1940, Coronado Island, CA. Benley Compound. Mr. Winthrop Benley & Mrs. Etta May Benley, were entertaining Dora Ware (wife/daughter, nee Benley), & Colonel Sir Edward Ware (husband/son-in-law). Lieutenant Hoare was to make up a Republican Presidential candidate campaign schedule for Winthrop. Later what would happen to Wendel Willkie (aka Dark Horse)? Who is Helga von Wessel?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written pre-& WWII historical fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great pre-& WWII historical fiction movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

2)Obviously a book backed by lots of research, I would recommend it for the World War 2 history buff in your life. It wasn’t really my style, but a good book nonetheless.
3)This book was an interesting “what if” reading experience. As far as I know, this book was well researched and I think the history buff and WWII buff would enjoy this book.
