A unit of the Seventh Cavalry is on a mission over Afghanistan when their plane is hit. The thirteen men and women bail out of the crippled plane, but when they reach the ground, they are not in Afghanistan. And it seems they have descended two thousand years into the past where primitive forces fight with swords and arrows. The platoon is thrown into a battle where they must choose sides quickly or die. They are swept along in a tide of events so powerful that their courage, ingenuity and weapons are tested to the limits of their durability and strength.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have a military and computer science background. I am a student of history and I’ve traveled extensively. In my science studies I came across the records of polar shifts. When the poles suddenly change, especially if the new poles are hundreds of miles from their original positions, it must cause great cataclysms around the world. If one of these event were strong enough, I wondered, might it change time? Could it rotate time into the future, or the past? That’s where the idea of a unit of the U.S. Army begin dropped back into the past, two thousand years into the past, came from. With that germ of an idea, I built around it using real people and events from 216 B.C.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main characters are fictional soldiers, including four women, from the Seventh Cavalry of the U.S. Army. Hannibal is the Carthaginian General who famously took his army and elephants over the Alps to attack the Romans.
A dozen children jogged along the side of the trail, passing the wagon train. They wore short sarongs made of a rough tan fabric extending to their knees. Except for one of them, they were bare above the waist and dark complected, but not black. They carried bulging goat skin water bags with straps over their shoulders. Each one held a wooden bowl in his hand. The bowls were attached to their wrists by a length of leather.
