Quote: "Alric":2b9u9h2k
It is an excellently written novel. As a historian and historical fiction writer, I have to say that Pressfield managed a true gem with this novel. The characters and action really manage to draw the readers in, as well as giving them just a small feel of what it would have been like to stand that narrow strip of land at Thermopylae.[/quote:2b9u9h2k]

"Tides of War" is the only other one I liked. "Last of the Amazons" didn't hold me too closely, and I'm fearing that his newest book on Alexander the Great might be as good as the Oliver Stone movie. view post
