Fairfax gives us an alternative and truthful picture of history, with all its twists and turns, that has inevitably led us through slaughter to the present. Upon immersing yourself in his spellbinding tales, you will never view history the same way again.
Oliver Fairfax is a lateral-thinking contrarian. He makes connections that are usually ignored and he exposes falsehoods universally accepted. He questions ‘givens’ that can lead to catastrophe. In a time when ‘The Suppression of Dissonance’ is widely practiced Oliver Fairfax is in his element. He is an iconoclast in the modern sense.
In addition to rewriting the world that you think you know, Fairfax defines the very nature of leadership. His fully human characters take a stand, take opportunities, take revenge and manage danger. They give of themselves to reach their objective. Others naturally want to follow. That is leadership. The charismatic Brandts command respect and attention, not through fear and intimidation, but through decisive action leading to a desirable result. We are all drawn to the Brandts and their tales of intrigue, mystery, suspense and achievement.
