Read full description of the books Άνεμοι Πολέμου:

Ένας άντρας, δύο στρατοί.
Η μοίρα του αρχαίου κόσμου στη ζυγαριά. Αν η Ιστορία είναι η βιογραφία ξεχωριστών ανθρώπων, η ζωή του Αλκιβιάδη (451 - 404 π.Χ.) είναι ένα μεγάλο κεφάλαιο στο χρονικό του δυτικού κόσμου. Από την οικογένεια του Περικλή, προστατευόμενος του Σωκράτη, ο Αλκιβιάδης είχε αναγνωριστεί ως η λαμπρότερη και πιο χαρισματική προσωπικότητα της εποχής του.
Κι όπως η υπερηφάνεια του Αχιλλέα επηρέασε την εξέλιξη του Τρωικού Πολέμου, έτσι η θέληση και η φιλοδοξία του Αλκιβιάδη σημάδεψαν τον Πελοποννησιακό Πόλεμο - την εικοσιεπτάχρονη εμφύλια διαμάχη μεταξύ της Αθηναϊκής Ηγεμονίας και της Πελοποννησιακής Συμμαχίας.
Το πεπρωμένο της Αθήνας και του χαϊδεμένου παιδιού της ήταν αλληλένδετα. Άντρας και πόλη χαρακτηρίζονταν από την ίδια τόλμη και φιλοδοξία και την ίδια στιγμή ήταν εξίσου ευάλωτοι. Όταν συμμαχούσαν, πετούσαν από τη μία νίκη στην άλλη. Όταν ήταν αντίπαλοι, εκείνος οδηγούσε τους εχθρούς της στη δόξα.
Στους Ανέμους πολέμου, η εξομολόγηση ενός οπλίτη που υπηρέτησε κάτω από τις διαταγές του Αλκιβιάδη στον αθηναϊκό στόλο -καταδικασμένου τώρα σε θάνατο για το φόνο εκείνου του άντρα που αγαπήθηκε και μισήθηκε τόσο πολύ- ζωντανεύει με μοναδικό τρόπο μια από τις σημαντικότερες διαμάχες της Ιστορίας.

Read information about the author

Ebook Άνεμοι Πολέμου read Online! I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, in 1943 to a Navy father and mother.

I graduated from Duke University in 1965.

In January of 1966, when I was on the bus leaving Parris Island as a freshly-minted Marine, I looked back and thought there was at least one good thing about this departure. "No matter what happens to me for the rest of my life, no one can ever send me back to this freakin' place again."

Forty years later, to my surprise and gratification, I am far more closely bound to the young men of the Marine Corps and to all other dirt-eating, ground-pounding outfits than I could ever have imagined.

GATES OF FIRE is one reason. Dog-eared paperbacks of this tale of the ancient Spartans have circulated throughout platoons of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan since the first days of the invasions. E-mails come in by hundreds. GATES OF FIRE is on the Commandant of the Marine Corps' Reading list. It is taught at West Point and Annapolis and at the Marine Corps Basic School at Quantico. TIDES OF WAR is on the curriculum of the Naval War College.

From 2nd Battalion/6th Marines, which calls itself "the Spartans," to ODA 316 of the Special Forces, whose forearms are tattooed with the lambda of Lakedaemon, today's young warriors find a bond to their ancient precursors in the historical narratives of these novels.

My struggles to earn a living as a writer (it took seventeen years to get the first paycheck) are detailed in my 2002 book, THE WAR OF ART.

I have worked as an advertising copywriter, schoolteacher, tractor-trailer driver, bartender, oilfield roustabout and attendant in a mental hospital. I have picked fruit in Washington state and written screenplays in Tinseltown.

With the publication of THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE in 1995, I became a writer of books once and for all.

My writing philosophy is, not surprisingly, a kind of warrior code — internal rather than external — in which the enemy is identified as those forms of self-sabotage that I have labeled "Resistance" with a capital R (in THE WAR OF ART) and the technique for combatting these foes can be described as "turning pro."

I believe in previous lives.

I believe in the Muse.

I believe that books and music exist before they are written and that they are propelled into material being by their own imperative to be born, via the offices of those willing servants of discipline, imagination and inspiration, whom we call artists. My conception of the artist's role is a combination of reverence for the unknowable nature of "where it all comes from" and a no-nonsense, blue-collar demystification of the process by which this mystery is approached. In other words, a paradox.

There's a recurring character in my books named Telamon, a mercenary of ancient days. Telamon doesn't say much. He rarely gets hurt or wounded. And he never seems to age. His view of the profession of arms is a lot like my conception of art and the artist:

"It is one thing to study war, and another to live the warrior's life."
