Videssos was beset by enemies. A pretender held the throne--a despot who cared little that barbarian hordes and rival realms carved away at his empire, so long as the wealth and booty of the land satisfied his unbridled appetites.

Few stood against him. And those few soon found their heads on pikes.

Only one name held hope for freedom: Maniakes. And from his exile on the very edge of the civilized world, young Maniakes took up the challenge, rallied his forces, and sailed off to topple the tyrant.

But the tyrant would use every means at his disposal--fair or most hideously foul--to destroy the crusading upstart. And even if Maniakes could stay alive, he would still have to pull together a battered, divided land as well as fend off a host of enemies--and thwart the former friend who had become his empire`s most deadly foe!

Harry Norman Turtledove (English Harry Norman Turtledove ; born June 14, 1949, Los Angeles, California) is an American science fiction writer, representative of the genre of alternative history.  Aliases: Eric G Iverson Dan Chernenko Date of birth: June 14, 1949 Place of birth: Los Angeles, California, USA Citizenship: USA Occupation: prose writer Genre: alternative history Studied at Caltech with a degree in electrical engineering, but his humanities prevailed and eventually Turtledave graduated in 1977 from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) with a degree in ancient history with a Ph.D. in Byzantine history. A professional historian, he turned to literature at a mature age. The first novel was published in 1979 under the pseudonym Eric Iverson. This was followed by a series of works of small form; the best of them are collected in the collection "Kaleidoscope" (1990). The short stories Mismatch (1988) and Shrinking the Earth (1991) definitely belong to the hard SF genre. Unusually for Tertledave, the action takes place not in an alternate world, but on Earth. However, the novel "Other Flesh" (1988) describes the events taking place in the "other" USA, and in the novel "World of Differences" (1989), the Soviet and American research crews collide on the "other" Mars. It is noticeable that the light themes of Tertledave are not attractive. His books are highly regarded by critics, and each new work is eagerly awaited. The main achievement of Tertledava the writer is the cycle of fantasy-historical novels "Videss", which opens with the novel "The Lost Legion" (1987). The mini-series "Crisp Videssky" adjoins this cycle, preceding "Videss" according to the internal chronology. from wiki
