A Western army marches into Afghanistan, planning to conquer it in three months. Three years later, a deal is struck leading to an "honorable" withdrawal. Not a page of recent history, this is a haunting historical novel recounting Alexander the Great's ill-fated Afghan invasion. Told by a Greek foot-soldier, Pressfield's novel features a well-staged, crisp, and understandable story line and enough historical detail to fascinate without slowing down the relentless plot. British reader James Langton presents believable and varied voices for the key characters and brings forth the story with the discipline and timing of a well-trained army. Add in excellent sound quality, and the listening time with this book is well spent. T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
