Voldemars Vechi had become one of the youngest Latvians ever to attain officer status in the Czarist Cavalry. But the Great War sparked to life with the consummation of young heroes, the Russian Empire imploding into anarchy, the Latvian people clamoring for independence, and the Kaiser's German killing machine ravaging the bucolic landscape. Voldemars finds himself caught between his obligated duty to his conscripted country Russia, and his heart and heritage, Latvia and Telmeni. Voldemars' destiny is his struggle between his legal loyalty to the Czar, his own country's rise for independence, his father's desire for his future, and the welfare of his wife and new born daughter.
