Great Battles

Chris Carey

Great Battles

  • The Great Battles Series. The story of the world's most important battles—how they were fought, how they have been commemorated, and the long historical shadows that they have cast
  • The story of Thermopylae—the famous last stand of the severely outnumbered Greek army, which went on to be immortalised in myth and in Hollywood
  • Considers the events of the battle itself, as well as the difficulty of approaching the evidence of a classical event from a modern standpoint
  • How the battle has been remembered, from the immediate aftermath to the present day—and what this tells us
