Persian Fire

The First World Empire and the Battle for the West

Tom Holland

In 480 BCE Xerxes, ruler of the Persian Empire, invaded mainland Greece, intending to subdue democratic Athens and the sternly militarized state of Sparta. This award-winning history of the Persian Wars explains the background to the invasion and describes the battles of Thermopylae, Salamis and Plataea, where the outnumbered Greeks resisted the largest expeditionary force ever assembled.
