The Saga of Gettysburg, A Reluctant Union Hero, and the Men He Inspired
HEART ALLY BOOKS
Without Warning is a historical novel of the Battle of Gettysburg appealing to fans of Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Killer Angels. Without Warning is a surprising story that discloses a previously hidden truth, like Dee Brown’s 1971 revelatory book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, that forever changes our vision of a historical event.
Remaining faithful to history, I have not consciously changed any facts. All the federal officers and soldiers are real-life participants in the battle, including General George Meade and his nemesis, the conniving General Daniel Sickles, who flagrantly disobeyed orders, creating a situation that nearly destroyed Meade’s army. Counter to The Killer Angels, Lee’s army and his generals are the villains in Without Warning. The result is a surprising story as accurate as the history but more fascinating and compelling.
Fractured Pursuit isa historical novel and sequel to Without Warning. It covers General Robert E. Lee’s retreat from Gettysburg and General Meade’s pursuit of the Army of Virginia from July 4-14, 1863. More Details »

Warfighting & Disruptive Technologies:
PUBLISHED FRANK CASS 2004
Occasionally, militaries during times of peace achieve major warfighting innovations. Terry Pierce calls these “disruptive innovations.” The more common innovation phenomenon, however, has been that of integrating new technologies to help perform existing missions better and not change them radically. The author calls these “sustaining innovations.” The central theme of this book is that senior leaders who have successfully managed disruptive innovations disguised them as sustaining in order to ensure their innovations survived.
The recent innovation history suggests two interesting questions. First, how can senior military leaders achieve a disruptive innovation when they are heavily engaged around the world and they are managing sustaining innovations? Second, what have been the external sources of disruptive (and sustaining) innovations?
