I am not a big fan of military strategy however I am a fan of Mr. Pressfield. For those who like military history and strategy this is a must read. Enjoy.

My marine son buys copies of this book to give to other marines in his weapons classes. So I had to get a copy. It is a very easy read and very understandable. Very testosterone filled book but exceptional nonetheless. While I may not agree with the authors dismissal of the Christian faith, I believe this is still a valuable book to read.
