Steven Pressfield - I Considered Going Back to Screenwriting

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Steven Pressfield (born September 1943 in Port of Spain, Trinidad) is an American novelist and author of screenplays, principally of military historical fiction set in classical antiquity. His historical fiction is well-researched, but for the sake of dramatic flow, Pressfield may alter some details, like the sequence of events, or make use of jarring contemporary terms and place names, his stated aim being an attempt to capture the spirit of the times. To enhance his readers' immersion in ancient times, Pressfield typically writes his novels from the point of view of the characters involved. For instance, The Virtues of War is told from the first-person perspective of Alexander. His epic novel Gates of Fire is on the Commandant of the Marine Corps' Reading list. It is taught at U.S. Military Academy and United States Naval Academy and at the Marine Corps Basic School at Quantico[1] , and according to the L.A. Times, "has achieved cult status among Marines." Pressfield served in the United States Marine Corps in the 1960s, and later graduated from Duke University. Buy the Warrior Ethos Here:
