Wars and Heroes: A Kingdom in Turmoil is a work of fiction in the historical and drama subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by Robert T Wang. Leaning heavily on the hard side of historical fiction with tons of research and ancient history packed in, this is a serious look at the Eastern Han Dynasty of China covering roughly a century from 184 to 280 AD. As we travel through epic battles and complex political struggles, a series of rebels, soldiers, warlords, and civilians tell the tale of the Three Kingdoms and deliver an English language version of an epic Chinese tale.
Blending hard historical facts with imaginative storytelling, legend, and a cultural flavor is no mean feat, but Robert T Wang delivers on all fronts with a novel that will surely suit history readers of all types. I was fascinated by how much there was to learn, and although a novel of this type understandably takes a little while to get going, the pace builds up surprisingly quickly as the action takes over and the subplots intertwine with precision and depth. The work certainly focuses on the plot, culture, and context of war far more than any individual character. Big-picture readers will enjoy seeing the pieces of the puzzle fit together, as the author dedicates a lot of time to construct the overarching political and military storyline perfectly. I recommend Wars and Heroes to all historical fiction fans who want a strong plot-driven tale with plenty of research and depth.
