Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In 480 B.C., Xerxes I, king of the Persian Empire, led a vast and uncountable army intent on the domination of Europe. Only a tiny collection of Greek city-states stood in his path. At Thermopylae the Persians annihilated a small holding force commanded by King Leonidas of Sparta, then quickly marched on to Athens, reducing the city to ruins. Outnumbered and beset by treachery, Sparta, Athens and their allies gathered near the town of Plataea for one final battle. The future of Western civilization hung on the outcome. In Kithairon's Shadow is the story of five men from ancient Greece and the parts they would play in determining their future, and ours.

If you hate reading history books to learn about the past, you'll love this book. It's an accurate retelling of the 2nd Persian War from the perspectives of five of the combatants. It takes a little getting used to the Greek names, but they soon get familiar and the story moves swiftly.
