Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by a master storyteller, Tycoons War is the remarkable account of an epic imperialist duel—a violent battle of the capitalist versus the idealist, money versus ambition, and a monumental clash of egos that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans. This incredible true story—impeccably researched and never before told in full—is packed with greed, intrigue, and some of the most hair-raising battle scenes ever written.

Synopsis:

"Tycoon's War" tells the story of an epic imperialist duel--a violent battle of capitalist versus idealist, money versus ambition--and a monumental clash of egos that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans.
