From the Publisher"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
"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
"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
