"A terrific read - gripping from start to finish...this is historical fiction at its very best" -- JAMES HOLLAND "A splendid tour de force, one that brings to life the heroism, sacrifice, tragedy, frustration, fear and - yes - thrill of war" * WASHINGTON POST * "No one writes better historical fiction than Steven Pressfield" -- VINCE FLYNN "Readers of Steven Pressfield know that his stylish and meticulous novels of battle can rise as far above an often dismal genre as Patrick O'Brian's. After two tales of Alexander the Great, he shifts epochs - without any softening of his flinty, rhythmic and laconic prose - to dramatise an episode of the Desert War in North Africa...Presented as the memoirs of a highly literate publisher, this account of the clandestine operation "where a single individual might make a difference" shuns false heroics to paint the true face of irregular war in the wilderness" -- Boyd Tonkin * THE INDEPENDENT *
