Freedom’s Sons Now In Print

Dewds:

Freedom’s Sons is now available in proper, printed book form, both paperback and hardback, on Amazon.com at:

http://www.amazon.com/Freedoms-Sons-H-Covington/dp/149181120X/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1380939345&sr=1-2&keywords=Freedom%27s+Sons

Warning: this is expensive, as one might expect, because it is a big, thick book, the longest I have ever written or will ever write. The official page number is 912 pages, but including the opening glossary, which is numbered in little Roman numerals, the actual total is 979 pages.

Enjoy!

    I’d sell my soul to see a full-scale Hollywood movie made out of this book.

    Harold, what can I say, except c’est magnifique?

    Hi Harold. Now that you have written the Northwest series do you plan to write any more fiction and, if yes, what might the theme be?

    At nine there is not nearly enough Reviews over on amazon.com. Just a few key strokes, click on 5 stars, and move along.

    I never cease to be amazed that this putrid little Movement has actually produced a writer of genius. I never thought we could accomplish anything like that, collectively. HAC gives me hope.

    Dear Mr. Covington: A friend of mine gave me Freedom’s Sons for Christmas and it blew me away. I have never read any pro-White fiction before and I now have part of my mind forever in the Northwest Republic. I hear there are other Northwest novels in this series. Can you tell me where to find them?

    I have just finished Freedom’s Sons, and it is a fine achievement, Harold. Many thanks for everything you have done for all of us.

    What can I add? It’s all been said.

    I’ve only read the .pdf version so far, but I intend to order the entire series in print form within the next few months. If finances permit, I may order additional copies of “The Brigade” and “Freedom’s Sons” to give to friends.

    Their website doesn’t make it very clear (the one I’m about to mention), but there is something called “book crossing” where books can be registered and then left on park benches for people to find, the idea being that every finder records their find, reads the book and then passes it on, though I don’t know how successful it is. Presumably a lot would be thrown away by cleaners.

    Another idea, at least here in the UK, would be to ask your local public library to order a copy. All it costs is the price of a postage stamp, which will be used to let you know when the book comes in. The library buys the book.

    Excellent book in addressing some of the logistic issues that any new breakaway Republic would suffer through the international community if they were successful in breaking away from their mother country. But some of the Balkan states that were able to break away from the corrupt and bankrupt Soviet Union gives me hope for the future. It is possible and likely under the right conditions.

    In my opinion the extra copy I bought today will prove to be a huge asset for the library over here.

  11. The book was a great read and a finale of the series. I did prefer “The Brigade” and my favorite was a “A Mighty Fortress” in the series but it was a fitting finale to an epic story.

    I liked this book very much. I particularly liked Nightshade. She is my favorite of all the female characters in Harold Covington’s many novels.

    My review, with 5 star rating:

    This book will show the reader what is often ignored in similar books in this genre – what do you do after you win? You’ve kicked some government tail, you’re standing (figuratively speaking) atop a burned out tank. Now what do you do? And what do you do when the government comes back for seconds? What would a new society look like in terms of laws? How would a new currency be implemented?

    This and a thousand other questions are answered with one man’s vision. To my knowledge nobody else has gotten past the “we kicked their @SS!” stage of what might be headed our way. Certainly not to answer the question, “How do the winners and losers get along with each other afterward?”

    Buy it.

    Just finished “Freedom’s Sons”, an entertaining and enjoyable read. Lot’s of comic relief and an imaginative plot. Impressive attention to detail on the formation and structure of a new political, social, and civil society. Great twist at the end.

    First-rate thriller. A lovely bit of political and racial fantasy. So are the rest of his Northwest novels. If Covington were not so
    politically-incorrect, his books would be on the NY Times best seller list.

  17. The final book in the Northwest Independence epic, Freedom’s Sons was long-awaited by those already acquainted with the first four books in the series (A Distant Thunder, A Mighty Fortress, The Hill of Ravens, and The Brigade).

    Freedom’s Son’s covers the first fifty years of the new Northwest American Nation following the Longview Conference that ratified the breakaway of the Pacific Northwest region from the remainder of the terminally-diseased, decaying and dying USofA.

    This final volume in the series picks up where The Brigade left off and we follow the fortunes of the new European’s Pacific Northwest Nation in it’s struggles against a USA in schizophrenic denial, a USA that doesn’t possess the wisdom or honesty to see the evil of it’s own ways and a dangerously pathological USA that can’t seem to stop starting new fires in whatever direction it chooses to exhale it’s putrid breath.

    The structure of the whole narrative is not simple and it’s very apparent that Mr Covington possesses a mind that is fine-tuned to the social and political climate of the post-war age, including the 21st century. His knowledge of history, politics, biology, technology, society, military and other areas makes him perfectly qualified to produce this incredible five-book epic.

    Considering the nature of the general story one may be forgiven for assuming that the book contains some far-fetched flights of fancy and somewhat wishful thinking on the author’s part. However, this is absolutely not the case and right there we have a very obvious reason for why these Northwest Novels are so irresistible: they are CREDIBLE.

    To my understanding, Freedom’s Sons is essentially three novels-in-one:

    Parts 1 & 2 (0 – 12 years after Longview)
    Part 3 (32 – 40 years after Longiew)
    Part 4 (40-50 years after Longview)

    The following crucial issues are tackled in Freedom’s Sons:

    Possible economic blockade of the PNW (a la pre-ANC South Africa);

    A multi-front military assault from the combined forces of the US, Canada and ‘Aztlan’ (including a possible nuclear threat);
    The building, structuring and peopling of the new PNW (building of domestic industry, trade relations, infrastructure [transport, roads and related], energy, education, military, resettlement, police, healthcare, national finance, etc);

    The NAR’s relationship with territories outwith North America, friendly and not-so-friendly (including espionage);

    The role of women, children and the elderly;

    The structure and format of government, and many other issues.

    My only POSSIBLE criticism of HAC as a fiction writer (and admittedly, I am no expert) is in a lack of detail in describing surroundings and locations and a tendency for dialogue to be overly extensive by digressing into topics seemingly unrelated to the issue at hand. However, considering these Northwest Novels are also a vehicle for the blueprint for a genuine Northwest secession movement (see NORTHWESTFRONT.ORG for further information and background on the quintet) I do understand that Mr Covington probably decided it was necessary to extend the dialogue in certain places to make the reader aware of the genuine viability of a future breakaway nation for European-descended folk.

    I can easily say that I enjoyed reading Freedom’s Sons as much as The Brigade, A Distant Thunder and A Mighty Fortress (I have yet to read Hill of Ravens), in fact probably even more so.

    They are inspiring, instructive, and original, and they have a huge potential for mass (white) appeal.

    I plumped for the more expensive hardback copy (£26/$35) as I think that a paperback book of over 900 pages stands a good chance of falling apart after a read or two – and I want my copy to be around a long time!

    Some have commented on the sheer size of this work, but it doesn’t appear to me that Freedom’s Sons is much longer than The Brigade: after a quick comparison, it’s obvious that the only reason Freedom’s Sons has so many more pages is because The Brigade has smaller line-spacing and smaller font resulting in more words per page for The Brigade. So if you’ve already read The Brigade, don’t be put off by the pagination of Freedom’s Son’s!

    Buy them all while you can, and do buy the hardbacks if you can afford them – they’ll survive being passed about and reread for many, many years longer than the paperbacks. [note: sadly The Brigade is on Xlibris, not Authorhouse, and as a result isn’t available as a hardback – so you’ll have to buy a cover-protector to make your PB The Brigade last a while!]

    This last of the Northwest Quintet is surely the most gripping, most tightly constructed and most satisfying of all of these incredible books.

    Departing from the tale of guerrilla revolution described by the previous novels, it covers the large-scale battles and all-out war that erupted between the United States and the Northwest Republic after the signing of the Longview Treaty.

    Covington excels in his last and best novel. I would have changed certain lines and a few key plot points centering on advanced technology are, at this point in time, redolent of a deus ex machina, but the facts remain:

    1. the Northwest Quintet is an extraordinary achievement, in both a literary and political sense;

    2. They demonstrate how, in literary form, this tyrannical beast that is destroying our people can be beaten and how we can build a better society in its ashes.

    Longer than the others in the series but extremely wonderful. Follows a few families and their experiences over generations of struggle, victory, more struggle, and eventual triumph over evil in every sense of the word. This and The Brigade by the same author are must reads.

  20. Anyone who cares about the state of the US should read this book.
    Another excellent work by this author. Epic

    On a quick note I just wanted to say that “Freedom’s Sons” was amazing. Not to sound like a total fag, but the emotions all your Northwest novels instill in me are some I have never experienced.
