4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview of the period, 30 Jun 2006

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This book deals with the conflicts between the Greeks and Persians beginning with the birth of the Persian King Kyros the Great to the signing of `The King's Peace' between the Persians and the Greek cities. This book includes all the major conflicts, such as the battles of Marathon and Thermopylai. The major source drawn on for this book is from The Histories by the Greek historian Herodotus, the `Father of History'. Although this book is somewhat light in places, it is well written and researched. This book would be perfect for anyone studying this period without wishing to go through the original sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality at a great price, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Avery good summary of the wars from 499 - 475 (the era beyond to 386 is only a postscript in this volume). There are some comments on how valid the historical sources are. The book is a good summary and ideal as a primer for more detailed books or reflection after reading several (in my case). Finally at £0.99, you can't go wrong.
