Editorial Reviews

Peter Heck
Walker is not content merely to create a comfortable lifestyle among the primitive locals. Driven by the desire for revenge on the Islanders, he introduces modern military technology and tactics...[and] sets Agamemnon on a course of conquest...[T]his book doesn't attempt to stand on its own feet; it's aimed almost exclusively at readers who know the first volume.
