Boots & Saddles: A Call to Glory
ISBN 13: 978-1-4328-2803-5
A turning point saved George Patton's military career. At thirty two, Patton is a West Point graduate 2nd Lieutenant, mired in a dead end career. He is a cavalry officer and saber master, a nineteenth century warrior, facing the realities of twentieth century warfare and an army that has no place for him. Prospects for the glorious military career he desires seem lost, until the United States cavalry is called to one last fight.
Publisher's Weekly says: "...Colt's sweeping and historically vivid portrayal of the Punitive Expedition, American and Mexican relations, and German double-dealing really makes this novel an exciting success."
Kirk Ellis, Emmy and Spur Award winning writer/producer says: "Paul Colt understands that the secret to good historical fiction is a firm grounding in the facts and a lively sense of character and period. In his capable hands, the story of young, ambitious George S. Patton and his early exploits in war and love makes for a rollicking adventure tale."
