The story of the Marathon campaign is an epic of the Ancient World. When the Ionian Greeks revolted against their Persian overlords in 499BC, the cities of Athens and Eretria came to their aid. The Persian King Darius swore vengeance and in 490BC a fleet of 600 ships packed with troops was sent to take revenge on the Athenians. At Marathon the Greeks met the Persians in battle and drove them in rout back to their ships. The moral effect of this victory was enormous for the first time a Greek army had defeated the Persians and demonstrated the superiority of hoplite tactics.

Each book analyses a major battle or campaign, from outbreak to conclusion, taking stock of the opposing forces at crucial points in the fighting. Full colour 3-D birds-eye views, battle scenes and maps help you to follow the action. Books in the Osprey Campaign series contain up to six pages of battlescene artwork, and colour and black and white images throughout. They provide an important reference resource for history enthusiasts, academics and wargamers.
