Summary

Drafted into the army of time.

Intelligence agents have uncovered something which seems beyond belief, but the evidence is incontrovertible: The USA's greatest adversary on the world stage is sending its agents back through time! And someone, or something, unknown to our history is presenting them with technologies - and weapons - far beyond our most advanced science. We have only one option: Create time-transfer technology ourselves, find the opposition's ancient source...and take it down.

When small-time criminal Ross Murdock and Apache rancher Travis Fox stumble separately onto America's secret time travel project, Operation Retrograde, they are faced with a challenge greater than either could have imagined possible. Their mere presence means that they know too much to go free. But Murdock and Fox have a thirst for adventure, and Operation Retrograde offers that in spades.

Both men will become time agents, finding reserves of inner heroism they had never expected. Their journeys will take the battle to the enemy, from ancient Britain to prehistoric America, and finally to the farthest reaches of interstellar space....

Well Done

These are two of my old favorites combined into one audio book. Highly recommend. Andre Norton's early books (such as these) were very good.

LOVED Re-Reading these books that I read as a teen!

It re-ignited the same passion I felt when I discovered them 40 years ago. Optimism / Faith in a human spirit.
Although as a teen the repetition of phrases. Ex: “Your guess is is as good as mine” when asked a question., and others, drove me crazy. But a small price to pay to hear this classic reborn. ‘Huzza’ to a Master!
