PRLog - Sep. 17, 2010 - History comes alive in this stunning epic about the heroes of antiquity. Journey back to 301 BC: it is 22 years after the death of Alexander the Great, and a young king named Pyrrhus is about to enter the world stage as two armies prepare for battle. He will later be described by Hannibal as the finest commander the world has seen, after Alexander.
This phenomenal book is more a story than a history, yet it is based on fact and reaches out to make this period come alive for readers. A Pyrrhic Victory refers to a win that comes at such a high cost that it may well destroy the victor.
About the Author: Dr. Ian Crouch is a medical practitioner living in Adelaide, South Australia. Since his early days in medical school, his abiding interest has been Greek and Roman history. He is currently writing the second volume of A Pyrrhic Victory, subtitled Destiny Unfolds.
“Writing with great style, Dr. Crouch brings this ancient age to life once more; maintaining an expert balance between historical accuracy and creative imagination … The book takes up the story of the gallant Pyrrhus: the most worthy of all the successors to Alexander the Great, he is the vivid central character who guides us through his world … It is a journey detailed throughout with real authority, great care, and unflagging energy. Dr. Crouch succeeds splendidly in conveying a compelling interpretation of the lives and loves, the achievements and aspirations, of great men in a great age.” – Dr. Eoghan Maloney, lecturer in ancient history at the University of Adelaide
