GREECE VS PERSIA

GREECE VS PERSIA
$6.95
Take a sideline seat for one of the greatest confrontations in world history! We travel back to the year 500 B.C. and learn why and how tensions between the ancient Greeks and Persians intensified until they brought the armies of both nations to the battlefield--both on land and at sea. Read of a spy whose shaved head helped trigger a revolt. Read, too, of a brave king who preferred to die rather than yield a key pass to the enemy. Discover what Themistocles meant when he argued Athens needed "wooden walls" and then join the decisive battle when these "wooden walls" kept Greece free. Find out how we know the details of these events and what a Greek historian had to say about the Persians. Then read a play that presents the historic encounter from the Persian point of view. cal9911t
