Thermopylae: The Battle for the West

by

Thermopylae: The Battle for the West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An impressively accessible narrative depicting the three-day battle for the pass at Thermopylae (the Hot Gates) — a critical contest in Xerxes's massive invasion of Greece. The bloody stand made there by Leonidas and his small Spartan army in 480 B.C. has been hailed ever since as an outstanding example of patriotism, courage, and sacrifice.

Review:

"A gripping story." Economist
