Missive #70 Published 7 May 2023

The Conquerors is a difficult book. The book deals with a very specific time in history — in the chaos of pre-civil war China, just after the death of Sun Yat-sen, and just after the Shameen Incident of June 23, 1925, during the Canton-Hong Kong strike. If all of that is familiar to you, then most, if not all, of the difficulty involved in reading this book will disappear. — Edited customer review

This is another good sailing-based thriller by Cornwell; retitled in the United States as Killer’s Wake. The only character in this book that was also in the first one was the policeman. I'm going to consider these books to be a series and will show this as being the second one in the series of five books.

I have to agree with the Customer Review; a very good travel book. Also the best Huxley book that I have read so far, much better than his early novels. A recommended book.
