'A cracking, fast-paced contemporary re-telling of the legend that is Alexander ... Pressfield brings him alive for the modern audience with the verve and skill with which he conjured the heroes of Thermopylae in Gates of Fire.'
'If you want to know what it might have felt like to ride into battle with Alexander, read this striking book...blends a scholar's accuracy and a novelist's eye.'
BARRY STRAUSS, author of Salamis
'Pressfield has tackled a subject worthy of his enormous talent...and triumphed again.'
'Deeply researched, dashingly written...this is a a terrific performance'
'As all-conqueringly glamorous an account as Alexander himself'
SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE, DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Books of the Year'
'The acclaimed chronicler of Ancient Greek warriors tells of the mightiest of all...Pressfield succeeds quite brilliantly where a lesser novelist might stumble, enabling the legend to meet the man... [he] excels in depicting the blood, guts, glory and shame'
