Reviews of Alexander: The Virtues of War

Average rating

    Despite an unnecessarily long introduction, Pressfield's 1st-person fictionalized "autobiography" of Alexander the Great impresses with its meditative introspection on leadership, the horrors of warfare, and the pursuit of the untenable dream. As usual, his action scenes are gripping and authentic, without overwhelming the literary qualities of his story. Besides the long introduction, the only flaw is the sometimes too-long time gaps between major events.
