Excerpts from Cry Havoc

Cry Havoc by M. Short

Cry Havoc in my first book in the series A Saga of Dogs of War-A Story of Mercenaries. The book starts as the Earth starts to heal from a cataclysmic event that ravaged the planet for 60 years. Before the Earth fell victim to the cataclysm, it was governed by six large multi-national corporations referred to as the Big Six. As the Big Six assessed their fate on Earth they turned to Mars for resettlement of their corporations. The Big Six as on Earth controlled the land and its employees that lived, fought and died on Mars and its nearby moons.

The books follows a Mercenary Clan that came to be known as “The Dogs of War” as they begin there mission in 2235 to reclaim Earth from their newly established base on the earth’s moon.

Here is a short excerpt when the Mercenary Clan was born.

The Clans next step was the choosing of a name for the clan. Names were bounced around for some time when Commander Stone, a Earth history buff, suggested a line from a 15th century play “Julius Caesar” by William Shakespeare that read, “CRY HAVOC and let slip the dogs of war.” From that line in the play the name Dogs of War was chosen and was adopted on May 20th 2235.

As they discussed the plans for the clan’s conduct it was felt that a guide in their endeavors would require a Clan Moto. They once again went back to the 15th century play and adopted the moto “CRY HAVOC.” Cry Havoc in William Shakespeare’s parlance was a signal given to the English forces in the middle ages to direct the soldiery to conduct pillage and chaos. No quarter was to be given to their adversaries.

The second addition of Cry Havoc will go on preorder on the 1st of January 2021.
