Summary
As commander on land and sea, Alcibiades was never defeated. Kinsman of Pericles, protégé of Socrates, the warrior was renowned as the most brilliant and charismatic personality of his day, as--fearlessly ambitious, politically ruthless--he forever altered Athens' destiny. During the twenty-seven-year Peloponnesian War, he swept from victory to victory, seemingly invincible. And then, in a shattering twist of fortune, he tumbled from glory. Recounted by Alcibiades' trusted bodyguard & hired assassin in a mesmerizing death-row confession, Tides of War is historical fiction at its finest--a rich and moving flesh-and-blood retelling of one of history's pivotal conflicts, written by an incomparable master of historical fiction
Summary
Plutarch, Plato, and Thucydides have all immortalized Alcibiades (ca. 450-404 b.c.) as a peerless general and conqueror. The destinies of Alcibiades and Athens were inextricably intertwined; the man and the city-state mirrored each other's boldness, ambition, and the fatal flaws that were their undoing
