    Alcibiades - mercurial soldier and charismatic commander without peer on land and sea, a man whom fortune always favoured. Raised as a ward of Pericles, later a protege of Socrates, and compared to Achilles by the adoring Athenian masses, he was to become the key figure in the Peloponnesian War - the tumultuous 27-year civil war between Athens and Sparta that would devastate Greece in the last quarter of the 5th century BC. At the outset, for all his Spartan upbringing, Alcibiades remained loyal to Athens. But his ... Show more

Read Gates of Fire instead

by johnwerneken on Sep 8, 2011

The Tide Runs Out On Alcibiades

by mahdi1rayattnet on Sep 10, 2009

Compelling, detailed and readable account about the great and Incomparable, Athenian Leader, Alcibiades and the Peloponnesian War of the 5th century BC. Pressfield continues to show us that he is both an outstanding researcher and a man of letters without equal.

I felt that the the way the book was writen was disjointed and too heavey onthe combat scenes.It might have been better to have followed one of the characters experiences rather than the three. If the auther had followed a similar format as the Gates of Fire it would have been a better read.
