The great depression of '29 and why it continued because of the lack of camaraderie between industry, capital, management and labor - the ingredients you need to make the system work. When did it end? Well it didn't end. In 1939 President F.D.R. made a moratorium of any strikes or negotiations, because of the war in Europe. His hope was to keep us out of the war. We would keep Europe and Asia supplied with the tools of war.
Imagine your family member, co-worker or trusted friend is a member of a terrorist sleeper cell who would kill you without hesitation once an attack on American soil commences. This exact scenario plays out in Tommy Anderson’s thrilling debut novel, Haboob Wind (Coyote Mountain Publishing, May 2018, $12.99, ISBN # 978-1- 5136-34234). This gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines narrative has received rave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and a commitment from Hollywood’s Global Edge Pictures to turn the book into a major motion picture. Shar Yonan of Global Edge Pictures said, “I knew by chapter two that Haboob Wind had the potential to be a blockbuster hit because it’s a true dedication to the heart and soul of our military veterans.” It’s 2021, 20 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America and celebrations to the heroes and survivors are suddenly disrupted by a long-planned terrorist attack within the U.S. An Electronic Pulse Weapon (EPW) missile attack along with a ground terrorist assault is launched at a Southern California military installation — supported by thousands of sleeper cell members, who camouflaged themselves into the fabric of American society as patriots working in trusted positions in the government, law enforcement, FBI and CIA. The invasion, called Haboob Wind (a violent Arabic dust storm), is orchestrated by a radical jihad army formed after the U.S. pulled out of Iraq in 2011. A vintage strike force, led by veteran military officers, is called on to defeat the terrorist group. In an epic battle of good versus evil, Anderson confidently showcases the resourcefulness and patriotism of our veterans to protect our life, liberty, and freedom against all odds of modern warfare.

CHAPTER ONE RMS Lusitania 2:10pm, 7th May 1915 11 miles off the Old Head of Kinsale, the south coast of Ireland “Torpedo! Starboard side!” The lookout grasped the cold metal handrail tightly, his knuckles white, staring helplessly as a 20-foot torpedo, travelling at 60 feet per second, disappeared from his view to ram 400 pounds of high-explosive TNT-Hexanite into the majestic ocean passenger liner. The detonation rocked through the ship, instantly killing those below decks where the torpedo hit. Passengers and crew braced themselves against whatever they could hold on to or fell to the deck. A column of water powered into the air and cascaded over the ship, damaging lifeboats and leaving the surfaces slick with water and punctuated with debris. Then a second, much larger explosion ripped through the doomed vessel. The blast reverberated through the metal hull, buckling metalwork and shattering glass. Smoke billowed from the forward funnels, and soot rained down onto the decks be- low. Stokers in the forward boiler room screamed inhumanely as pressurized steam erupted from fractured boilers, blinding and scalding them. Within seconds, steam burned their bare sweat-drenched torsos, plunging them into a sensory hell before they found a merciful death from shock and drowning. No one near the first or second explosions lived. They were either incinerated or trapped in the forward boiler rooms, far below the waterline, as the cold dark waters of the Atlantic rushed in through the ruptured hull to drown those who lay blinded, bleeding, and damaged on the industrial metal deck. On the bridge, Captain Turner ordered a hard turn towards the Irish coast in a desperate attempt to reach safety, but just after the ship altered course, the steam lines ruptured, and the liner’s four Parsons turbine engines failed to respond. RMS Lusitania, once the world’s fastest ship- the greyhound of the seas- suddenly had no power.
