Publisher's Summary

Arimnestos of Plataea was one of the heroes of the Battle of Marathon, in which the heroic Greeks halted the invading Persians in their tracks, and fought in the equally celebrated naval battle at Salamis.

But even these stunning victories only served to buy the Greeks time, as the Persians gathered a new army, returning with overwhelming force to strike the final killing blow.

For the Greeks, divided and outnumbered, there was only one possible strategy: attack. And so, in the blazing summer of 479 BC, Arimnestos took up his spear one final time at the Battle of Plataea.

I loved this series

This type of strategic description of the fights , yet believable characters is exactly what I look for in historical fiction.

I loved it.

The Long War Series-A Masterpiece

It takes a lot to make a great audiobook, much less a series of great ones. You have to have an excellent author and a talented narrator. It’s infrequent that I come upon any audiobook that the two work so well together. Peter Noble is handily one of the best narrators I have ever listened to, and the long war series written by Cameron was a beautiful portrait of Ancient Greece. I immensely enjoyed this series, and if you are a lover of history and adventure, this is a must read.

Tremendous saga

This is an incredible telling of an amazing saga. The authorship is wonderful and the reader is exceptionally good. Not tired of listening, even after the completion of the long series. Highly recommended.
