Christopher Posner

about this book: An Epic tale of warfare in Early medieval eastern Europe: a renegade nomad warrior defends a sedentary Slavic People against invasion from a ruthless nomadic empire, facing hostility and treachery from many of the people he is trying to protect. His knowledge of nomadic warfare proves invaluable to him, and he also falls in love with a Byzantine girl brought up among his allies. The author is an expert on Slavonic languages and history.
