The Defence of Greece

490-479 BC

J. F. Lazenby

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

This is a military history of the two Persian invasions of Greece, the first of which came to grief at Marathon, the second at Salamis and Plataia. The conflicts are largely examined in terms of the fifth century BC, avioding modern conceptions, and from the Persian as well as the Greek point of view.
