Rodney and Nathan Higgins are of the same blood, but they are destined to lead two very different lives. Rodney loves the life his father had worked for, living on New York’s Fifth Avenue in all the luxury that comes with it. Nathan is a Marxist radical, opposed to all that is his brother. Rodney, following in his father’s footsteps and defending his country on the sea, sails the Pacific for revenge on the Japanese after Pearl Harbor. Nathan, pushed into the war at the last minute, finds himself in North Africa, an able killer. Both brothers must fight for their lives, their beliefs, and for glory in Tides of Valor.
