Overview

Marketplace Product

The long and bitter struggle between the great Persian Empire and the fledgling Greek states reached its high point with the extraordinary Greek victory at Salamis in 480 BC. The sea battle banished forever the specter of Persian invasion and occupation. Peter Green retells this historic moment, evoking the sweep of events that the Persian offensive set in motion. The massive Greek victory, despite the Greeks’ inferior numbers, opened the way for the historic evolution of the Greek states in a climate of creativity, independence, and democracy, one that provided a model and an inspiration for centuries to come. Green’s accounts of both Persian and Greek strategies are persuasive and he provides everyday details regarding the lives of soldiers, statesmen, and ordinary citizens. He has first-hand knowledge of the land and sea he describes, as well as command of original sources and modern scholarship.
