Portuguese-Japan 1550-1647 Historic Novel

Significant changes to the politics, religion, technology, commerce and the increasing accessibility of global transport spreads several members of the De Soto, De Lyma and Da Gama families (both Moslem and Catholic) far and wide: to Lisbon, Nagasaki, Madrid, Goa, Zurich, Malacca and Istanbul. This migration involves these individuals who are acting on behalf of military intelligence, in navigating many war zones, and regions of political turbulence in Japan, Java, India, Ternate, Milan, Aceh and Britain. It is the first occasion in history that European fleets can travel to Japan, in the immediate aftermath of the fall of the Caliph of Andalusia and the rise of Islam in Southeast Asia. They enjoy many business and espionage possibilities and are introduced to unfamiliar technology, as well as confronting mysteries and coming face to face with assassins and unexpected killings perpetrated by new forms of weaponry. Even later, as Harvard University professors in the 17th Century, both former Portuguese and Spanish admirals, still work with the Armada fleet, which participates in Britain's intelligence war between King Charles I and Cromwell.
