Vikings found deep in the heart of Amazon

by Ben Thompson

I'm super pumped to announce the release of the first book in the Guts & Glory series, the Civil War, is coming out on Tuesday, October 28th. This will be the first in a three-book series designed to show how awesome, fun, and incredibly cool history can be. All of these books are going to be packed full of amazing battles, daring encounters, and other over-the-top, white-knuckle, action-movie-grade feats of heroism straight out of the annals of human history.

After Civil War, I'll be coming out with a book on Vikings in the spring, and then World War II in the Fall of 2015. I can't wait for you guys to check them out!
