I believe that this book was written before his pinnacle work, The Gates of Fire, but Pressfield's take on the Amazons is one of the finest historical fiction novels I have read...and I have read quite a few. I wrote a long passionate review of this book but scrapped it to simply say that I am so pleased I got the audio version of this book even though I read it years ago. The level of detail on every subject brought up in the book makes this journey a truly fascinating, rewarding, deep-breathing and supremely rich read and experience. I have read all of his work and it is easy to understand why it would be very difficult to follow any of his work, from this book through to his Rommel book that could reach the heights he attains in this book. Obviously, this is my cup of literate tea.
