No one writes about battles as brilliantly as Pressfield, and in The Virtues of War he vividly
describes the seminal conflicts of Alexander's career, revealing the tactics behind them and
capturing the blood, heat, and terror of the battlefield. He follows Alexander's forces as they
faced and defeated armies that far outnumbered them and delivers a thrilling frontline report
from Gaugamela, the scene of Alexander's greatest victory. In the powerful ending, Pressfield
shows a great conqueror finally halted, not by an enemy but by his own overreaching ambition.

Epic in scope and magisterial in tone, The Virtues of War is sure to take its place among the
classics of historical fiction.
