Author(s): Steven Presfield
Alexander the Great's campaign in the Afghan kingdoms began in the summer of 330bc. It would last for three brutal years and prove the most difficult he and his army ever fought. This work tells the story of this bloody and ruthless conflict from the perspective of a Macedonian recruit.
"* 'Pressfield's talent is awesome. Reading him is like watching Ali in the ring. He not only makes the impossible seem natural, but the power and grace of his style is jaw dropping. All novelists set out to be entertaining, most seek to illuminate, some try to educate, and a few hope to inspire. Pressfield does all of this and more. The Afghan Campaign is an extraordinary work, an instant classic.' - DAVID GEMMELL * 'No one writes better historical fiction than Steven Pressfield. This book should be required reading for anyone who wants to better understand...one of history's most tribal and troubled regions.' - VINCE FLYNN * 'An impressive scholar and gifted storyteller, Steven Pressfield is the finest military writer alive...I cannot recommend him too highly.' - STEPHEN COONTS"
