–Praise for Tides of War:
“Pressfield serves up not just hair-raising scenes…but many moments of valor and cowardice, lust and bawdy humor.…Even more impressively, he delivers a nuanced portrait of ancient Athens.”—Esquire
“Unabashedly brilliant, epic, intelligent, and moving.”—Kirkus Reviews
and for Gates of Fire:
“Vivid and exciting, Pressfield gives the reader a perspective no ancient historian offers, a soldier’s–eye view…remarkable.” -—The New York Times Book Review
“Gates of Fire lives up to its billing as an epic novel.…His Greeks and Persians come across as the real thing.”—San Francisco Chronicle
