About the Author
Praise For Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae…
"Steven Pressfield brings the battle of Thermopylae to brilliant life, and he does for that war what Charles Frazier did for the Civil War in Cold Mountain."
"Gripping and swashbuckling...an exciting, romantic, star-crossed story."
--The New York Times
"An incredibly gripping, moving, and literate work of art. Rarely does an author manage to re-create a moment in history with such mastery, authority, and psychological insight."
"A novel that is intricate and arresting and, once begun, almost impossible to put down."
"A timeless epic of man and war...Pressfield has created a new classic deserving of a place beside the very best of the old."
