Brothers at War
David Cochran has written a trilogy to make readers enjoy every bit of suspense and action. Brothers at War: Corrupt Nation: In today’s society, the nation is filled with a certain amount of falsehood and hatred that is publically displayed daily. The country is in a complete divide between political views and the faces elected to run; it seems to be doing more arguing than accomplishing. Media has skewed the ordinary people’s respect for the government in all forms. California has even gone to the start of a “Yes California” campaign to push for California’s independence from the United States. Brothers at War allows the reader to dive into a fantasized world where states, such as California, are allowed to successfully claim independence from the national government and operate under their state law. Of course, as one may guess, there will be many difficulties and conflicts facing each of these states as resources dwindle and push for land and control starts to become a focus. The story is going to be based in the year 2032, and the main character and family that the story is centered around is from a small town in central Pennsylvania. Below is a rough breakdown of how I envision the three-book series would play out.
Brothers at War: Divided Nation: This book will be the second book of a trilogy. It will be a continuation of “Brothers at War: Corrupt Nation.” In this book, the scene should be set for there to be a major war between the antagonist (Virginia and their allies) against Pennsylvania and their partners. President of Virginia is power-hungry and seeking to gain as much power, resources, and the land he can get. In doing so, he aims to concur the entire east coast and therefore has claimed War again PA and its northern allies. Meanwhile, there could be a viral pandemic that strikes the already crippled country, making environments even more challenging for the newly separated and independent states.
On top of that, the story will continue to build on other developed storylines and issues that have not yet been resolved from the 1st book. On top of the internal struggles the United States are facing, foreign countries, such as China, have become increasingly angry with the United States, for the divide of the country has taken away a lot of business from China, with a lot of the oversea deals they had with the United States becoming voided. China sees the divide of the United States as an opportunity to attack the vulnerable country. Towards the end of the book, China will launch its first formal attack on the west coast. This attack then causes California to put a cry out for help and provides a chance for the states to unite once more to defeat the greater enemy.
Brothers at War: United Nations: This book will be the 3rd book of the trilogy. It will be a continuation of “Brothers at War: Divided Nation.” In this book, the scene should be set for a major war between the more significant antagonist (China) against California and the United States. Forcing them to have to unite again to defeat the greater enemy. Following the embarrassing defeat against Pennsylvania, the President of Virginia is hesitant to help. The rest of the country decides to put aside their differences to help to struggle in California. Later on, just as the War seems lost, Virginia and their military power will show up as reinforcement to help win the War. On top of that, the story will continue to build on other developed storylines and issues that have not yet been resolved from the second book.
Following the victory over China, the divided state officials convene to form a new form of government where each state is still independently run. However, they understand they still need some natural order to unite all the nations again for future emergencies. Therefore, they form a federal government that will no longer consist of radical political parties but will instead contain only members who are willing to take ideas from both the liberal side and conservative side.
