By Singing Light

Lion in the Gateway: The Heroic battles of the Greeks and Persians at Marathon, Salamis, and Thermopylae

Lion in the Gateway: The Heroic battles of the Greeks and Persians at Marathon, Salamis, and Thermopylae - Mary Renault A child’s history of the Greco-Persian wars. Very simply told, very much Greco-biased. I’d like to read a modern adult history and compare the two. [Oct. 2009]
