Description: With the same mastery of the Homeric voice that made Gates of Fire international sensation. Steven Pressfield has crafted the epic tale of Alcibiades.

Plutarch, Plato, and Thucydides have all immobilized Alcibiades (ca. 450-404 B.C.) as a peerless general a conqueror on sea and land, whom the tides of war and furtune always favored. Raised as a ward of Peridex. he was later a ptotege of Socrates, and inevitably compared to the legendary Achilles. The destinies of Alcibiades and Athens were inextricably intertwined; the man and the dry-state minored each other's boldness, ambition, and the fatal flaws that were their undoing. When allied, Alcibiades Athens were unbeatable. When divided, he led Sparta and Persia to glory. At the end of his life, in exile from all factions, Alcibiiades was shunned by his courtrymen in their most desperate hour. Athens would rather fall than be led by its most leader.

Narrated by Aldbiades' trusted bodyguard assassin in a mesmerizing death confession, TIDES OF WAR is epic historical fiction at its a flesh-and-blood retelling of one of history pivotal conflicts.
