This is the second book in the alternate history in which the island of Nantucket is transposed into 1240 B. C. I heartily recommend it!

In the years since the event, the Republic of Nantucket has done it's best to recreate the better ideas of the modern age. But the evils of its time resurface in the person of William Walker, renegade Coast Guard officer who is busy building an empire for himselp based on conquest for technology. When Walker reaches Greece and recruits several of their greater kinglets to his cause, the people of Nantucket have no choice. If they are to save the primitive world from being plunged into bloodshed on a 20th century scale, they must defeat Walker at his own game: war.
