This book tells the story of the Persian-Greek wars of the 500-450s BC. The first half of the book, though, retells, briefly, the history of the three main nations involved (Persia, Athens, and Sparta). This part is entertaining enough to be a great book in its own right. Of course the wars themselves are the main point of the book; Mr. Holland tells their story in light of the conflict between "East" and "West" which he believes began with these wars and which has extended to our own time. A fascinating book, and relevant for our time, it will help the reader understand the roots of modern conflict between east and west.
