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.

An excellent book! From the moment you begin, it captures you and catapults you along the road to "The Hot Gates"! I've read about Thermopylae since I was in my teens but no book has ever brought the battle, the culture, and the men and women involved alive so well! This is the one I buy for people who love to read! Pressfield's masterpiece!
