The Dead War Series Trilogy. A little info on my new book.

Hi my name is George Cook the author of The Dead War Series Trilogy. Welcome to the Dead War Series. I hope you enjoy this first trilogy of The Dead War Series as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thank you for buying my book.

As with many things some things don't go the way we envisioned the first time around. I loved the way The Dead War Series books came out but they can always be better. Also a few minor issues I felt needed to be addressed.

This combined trilogy is canon or mythology for The Dead War Series. This is the official version. I want that known because it ignores the short story "Doctor" which was written when The Dead War Series was meant to go a different direction and end very differently. So basically what I'm trying to get across is that "Doctor" is not Canon and as far as I'm concerned it never happened. :)

To those of you who have already brought the first three books I want to let you know that there are not many changes.

Actually only three.

For a long time I have wanted to add the short story “Safe Zone” into the main narrative. I wanted to do this for two reasons. The most important reason being to properly introduce Liu into the series proper.

Previously he had only appeared in the short stories which took place before or during the first book. The second reason was to have Richards say the line “The US Army doesn't run from any enemy, living or dead.” In the series proper. It was only said in the short story “Safe Zone”.

The second change was to better describe the physical characteristics of the Delice character.

The last change was letting everyone know what happened to the character of Ingrid. Oddly enough she did not appear at all in Book Three: War after appearing in book two. That was something that has now been corrected.

So I guess that's about it and thank you all for your support.
