A fictional answer to Black Hawk Down, The Warlord is a pulsating military thriller set against today’s special ops war in Afghanistan.
Meet three-star general, Jackson Monroe, a character very much based on four-star general, Colin Powell.

What would happen if a polished middle-aged man like Powell found himself shot down in the mountains of Afghanistan and surrounded by the enemy?

Can a “soft” political general who has spent decades inside the corridors of Washington now become a hardened survivor, killer, and commander inside a war zone?

Loosely based on Xenophon’s The Persian Expedition, The Warlord tells the story of former sniper Jackson Monroe (The Silent Men) a man who must follow and then lead a ragtag unit against adversary after adversary as they try to make their way across hundreds of miles of hostile territory.

Evading, feinting, fighting, and then avenging, Monroe finally finds the commando he once was and the commander he always wanted to be.
