Excerpt from the book.

Eagle Warriors, are the elite shock-troops of the all-conquering Aztec Empire. Similar to their historical counterparts of Ancient Greece, the Spartans, the Aztecs are a society of warriors. They attack their enemies armed with shock weapons built to disable them without causing death. Their prisoners of war die on the sacred altar where they literally pluck out the still pulsating heart. For 200 years now they are the most feared and dominate force in Mesoamerica, where they have created one of the largest and most ruthless empires the world has ever seen. Now they face a foe unlike any other they have faced before, the Spanish, currently the most powerful nation in all of Europe. It is a new kind of enemy. They have never seen the devastating iron weapons the Spaniards carry, the armor that protects their bodies, the pigmentation of their skin, or the horses and dogs they have brought with them on their floating castles. They are two cultures with great means of destruction which now must clash. This is the story of the Eagle Warriors and their finest hour. This is the La Noche Victoria from the eyes of the Aztecs.


Interview With the Author

Q – So, what makes your new series, Most Fierce Ruthless Warriors That Shaped History, special?

A – Honestly, it is a mix of things. I love diving deep into history and the lesser known stories of those who shaped history. I’m not referring to the popular historical figures like Genghis Kahn, Alexander the Great, Charlemagne, or Julius Caesar. I mean the history regarding them is awesome stuff but this series makes a conscious effort to go beyond the typical textbook history.

In this series you get Ancient Assassins and the birth of terrorism, ancient Germanic Ghost Warriors and Rome’s greatest defeat, Viking Berserkers and the invasion of England, and Viking Varangian Guard in the Byzantine Empire. We even cover the great Eagle Warriors of the Aztec Empire and Kamehameha’s Hawaiian Koa warriors, two cultures that were forced to face overwhelming odds when they encountered European forces for the first time. The history is fascinating; it goes into depth regarding how the cultures viewed the Europeans as gods and the recorded omens in their history that foretold the arrival of these strange forces. This series tells the histories of the greatest and most elite warriors throughout the world and history.

Q – What order should I read the series in?

A – Well that’s another awesome part of this series. Each one stands independently. I did this so my readers could pick and choose the stories that interest them most or they can buy the entire volume and get all five stories for considerably less than purchasing them individually. However, two of the stories are connected even though they can both be read independently. The

"This is a case of an interesting introduction to a subject let down by grammar errors and poor formatting."

Reviewer: .


It's not a good sign when there's an obvious typo on the second page, less good when it is one a spellcheck would have caught: “thier” instead of “their”. The copyright notice is from another book, saying that the publisher is “not required to provide accounting services”.

The writing is not great. On the first page of the introduction there are grammar errors; for example the book shifts between present and past tense between sentences, and there's a blatant missing apostrophe. It also suffers from poor formatting: an occasional double space isn't a problem, but the lack of paragraphs in some sections creates a wall-of-text that is hard to read. However further in, the text is broken up by images and subheading, which greatly improves readability.

Despite my misgivings I found this an interesting read, initially blending discussion of the Eagle Warriors with the culture they came from, although I am sure there are better resources out there. However I was barely halfway through when it stopped talking about the Eagle Warriors and started talking about the end of the Aztecs and Cortes. It provides only a barebones description of the events, but it is enough to hold interest and would be useful to someone with no or fleeting knowledge of the subject.

Reading between the lines the book makes some dodgy conclusions: it states the Eagle warriors were greater then the Spanish, but the only battles they “win” against the Spanish, the Aztecs either have the explorer conquistadores hopelessly outnumbered or have twenty-four hours of terrain advantage, their entire force against the remaining conquistadores, and still fail to achieve their objective and kill them all. When the actual Spanish army arrives, they lost hard. It makes me want to read a biography of Cortes for the other side of the story.

The bibliography at the back gives further resources for reading.

This is a case of an interesting introduction to a subject let down by grammar errors and poor formatting. I have to give it a two, but fix those issues and the rating would go up.

The title totally grabbed my attention, but then reading about how the book has so many grammar errors just put me off instantly. Sitting through badly written books is one thing I can't bring myself to do.

I think this may be a really interesting read, although I know for sure that with a title like that, most people would rather enjoy this as a movie or documentary.
