Shortly after the death of Alexander the Great, lived a young king, Pyrrhus of Epirus. As two armies prepare for battle in the year 301 BC, Pyrrhus is about to make his mark on history. He is later described by Hannibal as the finest commander the world has seen, after Alexander.
Written by history buff Dr. Ian Crouch, A Pyrrhic Victory refers to a win that comes at such a high cost that it may well destroy the victor. This book is more story than history, yet it is based on fact and it dramatically makes this period come alive.
“Hannibal's commendation (of Pyrrhus, the central character), together with the Gold Medal in Historical Fiction makes a convincing case for a remarkable protagonist and an accomplished author.” – Recommended by The U.S. Review of Books
“Writing with great style, Dr. Crouch brings this ancient age to life once more; maintaining an expert balance between historical accuracy and creative imagination … 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, University of Adelaide
