From the PublisherEdward Schumacher
The Wall Street Journal
A fascinating work that will surely go down as a defining book on the era and one of the best and most readable nonfiction books of the year.
Conquest makes such exciting reading one forgets that these things actually happened. Hugh Thomas documents characters and events in as much detail as humanly conceivable....Monumental.
San Francisco Chronicle
Thomas balances writerly skill, exhaustive research, and scholarly documentation to make his book as useful as possible to both general and more involved readers....Essential.
The New York Times
So dramatic is the account in Mr. Thomas's telling, that...you almost don't want to give the story away....Compelling recounted.
Thomas does full justice to a titanic subject in his vigorous narrative, which contains enough heroism, cruelty and pathos for ten Greek tragedies.
