5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched, passionate and engrossing, June 26, 2012
Disclaimer – I have known Janet and Chris Morris for ~20 years, but mostly through their non-fiction work with non-lethal weapons and systems. Their attributes of passion for the subject at hand, thorough research, and the ability to write exceedingly well (often hard to find these days) extends beyond their defense policy work into this excellent book.
Readers new to the Sacred Band may find the going slow, at first. Stay with it – you will be rewarded by a fascinating saga of men, gods and godesses, honor, truth, loyalty and courage. Building on the factual numbers of bodies found under the Lion of Thebes, honoring those killed in the battle of Chaeronea, the story takes off and builds momentum to the end. The reasons for the climactic battle scene will not be spoiled here, but they answer the who, what, and especially the why of the main events.
Read this, and enjoy.
