Reviews

Barry Strauss is the Patrick O'Brian of the Persian-Greek war that set the course of western history. He builds a cast-of-thousands classical drama as exciting as any modern epic on a base of astounding detail.
-- Dava Sobel, author of Longitude and Galileo's Daughter
In the hands of Cornell University historian Barry Strauss, the story of the battle is a military epic of the first order.
-- Michael Kenney, The Boston Globe
This account of [the Battle of Salamis] by a history professor who is an expert on naval warfare with a gift for vivid narrative brings it, in all its suspense, its complications, its surprises and its cast of extraordinary characters, to fervent and turbulent life.
-- Bernard Knox, The Washington Post Book World
