As ancient Greek and Latin are rarely taught now at school, histories from the period 
in modern languages are specially welcome. This is particularly true of naval warfare 
from ancient history. This new book is well-researched and nicely written, 
concentrating on thirteen great naval battles of Ancient Greece.

The Greeks developed some innovative technologies and tactics to enable them to 
fight the massive Persian fleets that were necessary to enable the Persians to land 
large forces and engage Greek armies. As a result, the major naval battles frequently 
determined the outcome of land battles by cutting enemy lines of communication or 
destroying the Persian ability to land and support overwhelming forces ashore.

The author displays his passion for his subject and his easy to read text covers each 
battle in context, to provide the reader with an understanding of how and when the 
battle was to be fought, in addition to the conduct of the conflict. There are good 
clear maps to illustrate the important points.
