Gates of Fire

ebook
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
  • "An incredibly gripping, moving, and literate work of art, rarely does an author manage to re-create a moment in history with such mastery, authority, and psychological insight."—Nelson DeMille
    At Thermopylae, a rocky mountain pass in northern Greece, the feared and admired Spartan soldiers stood three hundred strong. Theirs was a suicide mission, to hold the pass against the invading millions of the mighty Persian army.
    Day after bloody day they withstood the terrible onslaught, buying time for the Greeks to rally their forces. Born into a cult of spiritual courage, physical endurance, and unmatched battle skill, the Spartans would be remembered for the greatest military stand in history—one that would not end until the rocks were awash with blood, leaving only one gravely injured Spartan squire to tell the tale. . . .
    "A novel that is intricate and arresting and, once begun, almost impossible to put down."—Daily News

    "A timeless epic of man and war . . . Pressfield has created a new classic deserving a place beside the very best of the old."—Stephen Coonts
