Afghan Campaign by Steven Pressfield

Book Description

Alexander the Great's campaign in the Afghan kingdoms began in the summer of 330BC. It lasted for three brutal years and proved the most bloody and ruthless he and his army ever fought...Among the ranks of Macedonian infantry is Matthias. The youngest of three brothers, he is eager to prove himself, but as he joins the frontline, he comes to realise that warfare has changed. The Macedonians face a new kind of enemy, and must learn to fight a new kind of war. Experiencing fear, euphoria, horror and shame, Matthias and his comrades undergo a rite of passage as they, soldiers of a Western force whose code is secular and humanist, confront a proud Eastern warrior people who possess a fervent willingness to die for their cause. Just to survive, Alexander's men must shake off the trappings of 'civilization' and adopt the same unorthodox and barbaric tactics as their foe - but at what cost? Set against the harsh, unrelenting Afghan landscape, this thrilling novel reveals a profound understanding of the hopes and fears of men in battle and has important things to say about the nature of wars past...and present.
