by S.W. Bardot

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The first work in a trilogy of proto-histories about the advent of the Trojan War, Embassy Outbound offers readers a look at the Trojan War as a real war, waged by descendants of the earliest Greeks a full five hundred years before the birth of Homer. The author disproves the oft-cited allegation that the war was a composite of scattered eras and epochs by diverse bellicose people who lived and fought within the five centuries that intervened between the real Trojan War and Homer’s Iliad. How the war started and why, and why it raged for a full ten years of intense annual campaigns, remains an issue for historians to resolve. In Embassy Outbound we have a contemporary historian, Mentor son of Alkimos, who tells of the keeping the peace with his oldest and best friend, Odysseus. Together, they steer the Embassy of twelve great galleys into battle and end up fighting the Trojan War for five years in separate theaters of action. Odysseus goes on to tell his friend and fellow warrior about the last five years of the war, after Mentor suffers an incapacitating wound. Here, though, they’re together at Embassy, voyaging at valiant exploit to forestall, even prevent, the war that became an inevitability as told by Ancient Greek literature. Embassy Outbound was originally released in 2007 as a limited edition hardcover book. The e-Book brings the work to a broader readership and adds a host of color illustrations and important supplementary information.

About the author
S. W. Bardot is the pseudonym of the Translator for the Bardot Group, a symposium of scholars whose studies are concentrated in the Eastern Mediterranean of the Late Bronze Age civilizations. Bardot Books, therefore, constructs from biography and prehistory the seamless run of most important events that occurred during the Late Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Bronze Ages. The emphasis affixes upon the 13th and 14th Centuries BC of the former. We are robust, authentic and entirely plausible in our reconstruction of both ages along with their vital chronology of subsidiary events.
