    A great book about an even greater warrior I thoroughly enjoyed reading this account of Alexander the Great Instantly it was 327 BC and I was standing alongside him in the most fierce battles—fast paced storytelling account of one of the most feared warriors King and most certainly legend Historically correct from what I can remember Wait where's my chariot

    The novel was fairly interesting but far from Pressfield's best I thought he reached his apogee with Gates of Fire or possibly Afghan Campaign This story begins with Alexander's men wishing to turn back from India and go home; they feel they've fought and died far enough from home for long enough Alexander's in his tent with Itanes his young brother in law and wants someone to talk to who can listen without

    An imagination of dazzling and epic scopeWith “Steven Pressfield” on the cover it took less than a heartbeat for me to grab this book—after Gates of Fire I was than eager to be caught up again in the author’s enthralling prose of storytellingEven with the author’s Note on the Reader expressly stating this as a work of fiction I soon found myself actually believing that it really was Alexander speaking his own

    Written in first person this novel tells the story of Alexander's conuests through his own words This book was a major turn off in the beginning because it was nothing than a statistical summary of all the components of his army during one campaign versus another He would list in detail the types of weapons his men carried how much these weapons weighed how they were utilized and why they were so effective in certain situations Also a lot

    Solid 3 stars but not because of any fault of the author Just too technical for my tastes His knowledge of Alexander's campaigns is unbelievable and any student of Alexander I'm sure will rave about this read I ap
