      He amassed a huge army of oversoldiers and 1, warships. The massive Greek victory, despite the Greeks' inferior numbers, opened the way for the historic evolution of the Greek states in a climate of creativity, independence, and democracy, one that provided a model and an inspiration for centuries to come. Nic Fields vividly describes the battle for the narrow gateway to southern Greece as the combined Greek forces held off the army of Xerxes and Leonidas's sacrifice bought time for the retreat and tactical and political regrouping that would save Greece. Naval warfare At the beginning of the conflict, all naval forces in the eastern Mediterranean had switched to the triremea warship powered by three banks of oars. These empires began as small city-states, and grew to become the powerful empires we know today. The first Persian invasion of Greece began in BC, with the Persian general Mardonius conquering Thrace and Macedon before several mishaps forced an early end to the campaign.

      The Greek fleet numbered about vessels and was thus only about one-third the size of the Persian fleet. I declare that he will not be restrained until he utterly tears apart one of these. When they arrived at the city of Athens, they found it deserted. The much larger Persian fleet attacked the small Athenian ships.

      They were great warriors of Greece. Who were the Persians? Daniel Ashby Themistocles was responsible for the Greek victory in the Persian wars to a considerable extent. He must have been pretty disappointed! They boarded the Persian fleet and headed to Greece.

The Greek and Persian Wars, 499-386 B.C. book

In Ancient Greece, these societies were called city-states or Polis. The Ionians thus prepared to defend themselves, and Cyrus sent the Median general Harpagus to conquer them.

However, in a Persian army of 25, men landed unopposed on the Plain of Marathonand the Athenians appealed to Sparta to join forces against the invader. It ended Persian hopes of successfully invading Greece.

When the Ionians decided to revolt they asked Athens and other Greek cities for help. At the height of the empire it stretched across, not only, Asia, from the Aegean to the Indus River, but also included part of the continent of Africa.

A general Greek league against Persia was formed in The Athenian fleet, however, was waiting off the coast by the island of Salamis. The Greeks then prevented a surprise attack on Athens itself by quickly marching back to the city. Command of the army was given to Sparta, that of the navy to Athens.

That night a tremendous storm destroyed the Persian squadron while the Greeks were safely in port. The early Greek city-state was divided into four social classes and they were: eupatrids, agroikoi, demiourgoi and the slaves.

The book includes such famous battles such as Marathon, Thermopylae and Salamis and offers a detailed account of Greek military dress during this period, supported by 12 full color plates by Angus McBride.

By preventing the Persians from conquering Greece, the Athenians, the Spartans and other Greeks made it possible for their own unique and highly influential culture to develop independently of Persian dominance. Typically these city-states fought each other, but they united to fight against the Persians.

Not the thing to appeal to the popular history reader. Previous titles "The Year of Salamis" and "Xerxes at Salamis" are not great either, since the book covers far more than just that year, or just Xerxes' viewpoint.
