Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Profession is a compelling mix of modern weaponry, modern communications, modern politics and the warrior’s ancient ethos of honor and loyalty. It moves quickly and with deadly precision…This is the modern world taken to its logical and frightening extreme.” Los Angeles Times
“Pressfield’s military thriller stands out from the crowd by speculating on what the next generation of warfare will be like and then dropping the reader right into the action. Clancy fans should give this a shot.” Booklist
“Pressfield imagines a world in which private military forces have all the power…When the commander of the largest force around decides to take control of the United states, his top commando—Gilbert ‘Gent’ Gentilhomme—opts to wipe out his commander. Pressfield dominates the military thriller genre, and his works are realistic enough that military colleges like West Point assign them.” Library Journal
“Pressfield’s impressive research shows throughout this novel…a book that paints an all-too-plausible future in which American outsources its dirtiest jobs.” Kirkus Reviews
