MarathonBook - 2011
The Battle of Marathon in 490 BC was one of history's great turning points. The first time the Greeks managed to defeat the Persians in a pitched battle, it enabled the rise of classical Greek civilization. Christian Cameron's retelling of the battle brings it alive, with all of its human drama and tragedy, as never before.
