The book tells the thrilling tale of one of the most storied battles in ancient history and reveals how the war's ramifications altered the course of Western civilization.
Xerxes I became king of the Persian Empire upon the death of his father, Darius I, in the year 486 BCE. His kingdom extended from present-day Afghanistan and Pakistan in the east to Egypt and Libya in the west and was the largest empire of the classical age.
Nearly 2,500 years ago, the mighty Persian Army, one of the largest the world had ever seen, plunged into a war of conquest against a much-smaller Greek city-state force.
