Describing the invasion in great detail, the author analyses the king's immense (even if occasionally exaggerated) army, considering its composition and logistical constraints. The campaign leading to Marathon and the decisive battle itself are then clearly narrated. Manousos Kambouris' meticulous research brings fresh insights to this timeless tale of defiance of the odds and victory for the underdog.
“Featuring impressive illustrations, The Rise of Persia and the First Greco-Persian Wars is… [as] fascinating as it is informative.” ~Midwest Book Review
