The Art of War

In Progress

Synopsis:

After a trek across the war torn United States, his identity hidden and being treated like just any other refugee, Arthur, heir to the throne of the British Empire, learns something that his tutors could never teach. Real People just don't quit. They don't just turn their backs on each other. "Every man for himself" is a lie. They rise up and reach out to the next person below them. They sacrifice to save each other. They stand up to their enemies and don't back down. This knowledge is power and Arthur, although too young to take the throne, but proving himself to be a true monarch, grasps this power and starts wielding it like the mythical Excalibur.
