Day of War, author Cliff Graham's first novel, has earned him a film option for the entire book series--Lion of War--from director David L. Cunningham (Path to 9/11) and producer Grant Curtis (Spider-Man films).In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life. He has joined a band of soldiers led by a warlord named David, seeking to bury the past that refuses to leave him. Their ragged army is disgruntled and full of reckless men. Some are loyal to David, but others are only with him for the promise of captured wealth. While the ruthless and increasingly mad King Saul marches hopelessly against the powerful Philistines, loyal son Jonathan in tow, the land of the Hebrew tribes has never been more despondent--and more in need of rescue. Over the course of ten days, from snowy mountain passes to sword-wracked battlefields, Benaiah and his fellow mercenaries must call upon every skill they have to survive and establish the throne for David--if they don't kill each other first.

Gives you an idea of how life was around 1000 years before the birth of Christ. The type of warfare men went through was described in detail. A good book to get a handle on the culture of that era.

A great book for those who enjoy historical fiction and action. The story about Benaiah, one of David's Mighty Men (an elite group of mercenaries who were known for their strength and valour during the ancient times of Israel).
With details on history and culture during those times, the readers get a glimpse of the chaotic age during the reign of the first king of Israel.

I an usually not a bit fan on war stories, but this one had me hooked!
I hope the library orders more.
