A Great Read

by Wynant R on Sep 16, 2012

This was a very interesting perspective of Alexander the Greats Afgan campaign. It is a great book and I would highly recommend it

Miner

pretty good, but not a classic

by Miner on Jun 21, 2007

As a comparison to the modern military campaign in Asia, the book provides an ominous cautionary tale. It's a decent story and introduces some interesting topics - what happens to men away and family at home during a long campaign, changing loyalties and views of leadership as the original Corps changes, a woman's place in the world, distorted sense of honor, etc. But as a gripping story it doesn't come through. Characters are okay, plot is fine, some segments make you feel the dust of the trail, but overall, it's just not as powerful a story as Pressfield is capable of. Admittedly, this is a very high standard - I think Gates of Fire is one of the best books I've ever read - and I realize it would be very hard for The Afghan Campaign to live up to that high standard, but I think it falls shorter than it should. Afghan Campaign is worth reading, but maybe not re-reading.
