If you enjoy ancient history and military brilliance, you will enjoy this easy read. Remarkable tale of how Greece saved the world from being overrun by the Persian empire through the utmost in military brilliance. A strong five stars.

As an avid reader of military histories I'm often forced to choose between writers who offer intelligent analysis and those who are great storytellers. Strauss is one of only a handful who do both. He portrays characters with a novelist's eye for telling detail and sets scenes with a filmmaker's vision for the epic. This is a must read for any reader of history.

The first female admiral in history, an evil eunich who pays back his tormentor, brave admirals and crafty warriors -- they're all in one book. Loved this thrilling history of a great battle at sea. Brings the sights, the sounds, and even the smells of the battle to life. It's 'Master and Commander' meets 'Gladiator' ... a great read!
