“Pressfield has done it again. The Afghan Campaign is yet another gripping historical novel . . . Although set in ancient times, Pressfield’s narration of the Macedonians’ efforts reveals remarkable parallels to later efforts by the Romans, British, Soviets, and Americans . . . an intense, fun, and thought-provoking read. It belongs on your shelf.”
—T. X. Hammes, Marine Corps Gazette
“Pressfield's scholarly skills are part and parcel of his impressive talent for re-creating the visceral, scalp-carving, lance-in-back horror of ancient battle.”
“Fasinating . . . As Patrick O'Brien's prose seemed to encapsulate the feel of the Napoleonic-era warship, Pressfield's crisp and eloquent style reconstitutes the ancient battlefield.”
steven pressfield is the author of the historical novels Gates of Fire, The Virtues of War, Tides of War, and Last of the Amazons. He lives in Los Angeles.
It is a very good read for anyone interested in military history or historical fiction.
The whole story is devoid of any charismatic figure, the main character is incredibly annoying and his cohort Lucas is even more pathetic.
Simply put, "The Afghan Campaign" is Steven Pressfield's best book since "Gates of Fire".
Another great read from Pressfield. Strong characters, action, drama. It also delves into some important social issues, without compromising the flow of things. Read morePublished 13 hours ago by D. Robertson
