Wages of Empire opens in the summer of 1914 as sixteen-year-old Evan Sinclair yearns to escape the constraints of living with his controlling father and leaves home to join the Great War for Civilization. Little does he know that despite the war raging in Europe, the true source of conflict will emerge in Ottoman Palestine, since it's from Jerusalem where the German Kaiser dreams to rule as Holy Roman Emperor with dominion over the Suez Canal, Arabian oil reserves, and with an eye to promote German-Nordic racial supremacy throughout the world.
Filled with real people from the pages of history such as Gertrude Bell, TE Lawrence, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Winston Churchill, Faisal bin Hussein, Chaim Weizmann as well as fictional characters, Wages of Empire follows Evan as he embarks on a journey that will bring him into the killing fields of the Western Front where he will help turn the tide of a war that is just beginning, and become part of a story that never ends.
