A Little Empire of Their Own: A Novel of Old Mexico by Bruce W. Farcau

Revenge! Revenge! Revenge! Never anger an Empress, especially if she is the queen of getting even. In historian and political scientist Bruce Farcaus new novel, A Little Empire of their Own, the WWI German General Staff learn the hard way never to underestimate a woman. Much to their eventual dismay, the former Empress of Mexico, Charlotte, demonstrates a true masters knowledge of Machiavelli, realpolitik, and cunning while seeming to be only a mad royal recluse living in a shabby Belgian palace that has seen better days. Charlotte knows just what she wants, and more dangerously for everyone else, just how to get it. She is ably assisted by Maria, her sultry lady-in-waiting; a handful of loyal retainers; an innocent, if somewhat randy young German officer; the greed of others; and the generally desperate situation the Germans and the allies find themselves in as trench warfare begins to savage a generation during WWI. Told against the background of Maximilian and Charlottes ill-fated attempt to rule Mexico in the 1860s, A Little Empire of Their Own is a fascinating and historically accurate story of Mexico during a period known by few, carefully interwoven with WWI in Europe and with one of the most bizarre aspects of the war-the Zimmerman telegram. Highly readable and wonderfully diabolical.
