Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae
Ellen Hampton's review
Sep 17, 2018
Molon labe, baby. High drama in exalted prose takes you into the one of history's most consequential battles. I would like to say it will make a Spartan of you, but maybe not. Still, Steven Pressfield does a masterful job of bringing authenticity to inaccessible cultures while keeping human conflict and desires at the forefront. It is a challenging story to bring forward and he has succeeded beautifully. Thanks to the Ancient and Medieval Historical Fiction group for pointing me to it!
