For those interested in the military and the history of warfare, Mercer's descriptions of battle tactics and strategies will be of interest. Those who enjoy classical mythology will appreciate this story of a real man who believed in and consulted the oracles, who sacrificed to the Olympian gods, and who occasionally tried to convince his followers that he himself was a god.
