I think it should be accurate but it doesn't have to be perfectly accurate. Otherwise, it may read as a text book, which I would hate. I love Steven Pressfield and I think he does an excellent job at this. His books are also surprisingly emotional. At the end though, he'll say that he changed some details like using modern day names for places, tweaked something, or just hypothesized on what could have happened. None of it bothers me and he doesn't completely rewrite history.
