Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae by Steven Pressfield
Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae

Brandon Abel, September 1, 2011

Steven Pressfield's work is enriched by his devotion and commitment to combining thoroughness with artistic style and Gates of Fire is no exception. Find yourself fully immersed in the land and culture of ancient Greece as they face one of the greatest last stands known to the history of the human race. See how vision, determination, unity, life philosophy and hard hard work from all can empower a people to hold strong in the face of seemingly insurmountable adversity.
