about this book

Steven Pressfield, the bestselling novelist of ancient warfare, has written a riveting historical novel that re-creates Alexander the Great’s invasion of the Afghan kingdoms in 330 B.C.

In THE AFGHAN CAMPAIGN, Pressfield brings to life the confrontation between an invading Western army and fierce Eastern warriors determined at all costs to defend their homeland. Narrated by an infantryman in Alexander’s army, this novel explores the challenges, both military and moral, that Alexander and his soldiers face as they embark on a new type of war and are forced to adapt to the methods of a ruthless foe that employs terror and insurgent tactics.

THE AFGHAN CAMPAIGN ultimately demonstrates Pressfield’s profound understanding of the hopes and desperation of men in battle and of the historical realities that continue to influence our world.

Praise for THE AFGHAN CAMPAIGN:

"THE AFGHAN CAMPAIGN is yet another gripping historical novel . . . Although set in ancient times, Pressfield’s narration of the Macedonians’ efforts reveals remarkable parallels to later efforts by the Romans, British, Soviets, and Americans . . . an intense, fun, and thought-provoking read. It belongs on your shelf.”
--T. X. Hammes, MARINE CORPS GAZETTE
