    One man. Two armies. The fate of the ancient world in the balance. In Tides of War, Steven Pressfield presents an epic saga of Greek strife and conflict with the same historical precision and heartbreaking human scale that made his last novel, Gates of Fire, an international best seller.

    H. Connelly says: "Pressfield is Terrific"
    "Different Themes than Gates of Fire"
    Overall

    Another excellent book by Steven Pressfield. But this time instead of dealing with the the themes of might and valor, Tides of War deals with betrayal, redemption, and forgiveness, and not just of others, but of one's self.

    As the narration bounces from sources at the beginning, the story is a little hard to follow. But this only lasts for a short period of time. Then the story takes off.

    The cascading effects of the wrongs people do against one another is at the forefront of this whole story. It's a vicious cycle that no one can stop.
