Great history on the Ancient Greeks

This is considerably the best non-fiction book I had to listen to in many years. Captivating History, does an excellent job of detailing the events, personalities, and consequences of the wars without losing the human element or influence on the world.

An extensive content.

This is an exceptional book. It seems the best non-academic book on the subject which I have seen in many years: excellent detail, great descriptions, and a very good bibliography.
It is highly recommended!

Outstanding and heroic

Green's love-affair with Heroditus is quite apparent and was a great use to him in this book. I loved it to Actium, and I much love the Greco-Persian Wars. Get this book, and you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book
