    just a straight military manual, albeit well written. I’m quitting at the halfway point, since there are no real characters, no plot, no relationships, no dynamic. The book is all tactics, strategies, battles, no doubt

    Awesome book. Virtues is the first Steven Pressfield novel I've read after reading The War of Art but I immediately ordered Gates of Fire and imagine myself working my way through the entirety of his work over t

    This historical fiction novel about Alexander of Macedon is very well done. The narration of the story is in the person of Alexander but there is an unknown person who appears to witness the interaction between Alexander and his confidante I

    This is a fiction book. It's historically imagined by the author. Please understand that. It's based on the real events, it's based on historically preserved documents however there is some filling in the gap

    This book was a fun journey through the life of Alexander and it was enjoyable to feel as is I

    This book belongs on every mans shelf. I was given a copy while in Afghanistan, it took me some time to finish the book. So vividly is Alexander written, and so accurate his personality of a commander, that I let my own historical knowledge of Alexander dread the ending of the story. Here is a fictional character that I would wish to emulate, here is a fictional character that I would want to have known, and here is a story that

    Mr Pressfield has written many great novels and if you look back at my reviews you will notice that I have enjoyed many of them. Here, with “Alexander, the virtues of war” he has excelled himself. A difficult task methinks as

    I first read Mr Pressfield's book, Gates of Fire. This is written to the same high standard. This author can make the reader feel he writes having been present as an observer in Alexander's inner circle. It is nothing short of an excellent read. (One small point only would I quibble over and that was his description of Hephaestion as a good friend, when a majority of academics can concur he was all of that and in all likelihood,

    The author seems to believe that prose written in the style of a Greek philosopher adds to the readers enjoyment of the story, in my case it doesn’t and I skipped over a lot of this in reading the book. He also considers that telling the reader in details of disposition of the armies before a battle is important, and educationa

    This is an interesting attempt to see the remarkable reign of Alexander the Great through the eyes of the noble Argead himself. We all tend to populate well known figures with our own estimate of how they functioned, get this wrong and you've lost a reader, get it right and you've lost another reader somewhere over there. Pressfield's approach is to major on two features. Firstly, his battle scenes are set in c
