Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

The Persian War is the name generally given to the first two decades of the period of conflict between the Greeks and the Persians that began in 499 BC and ended around 450. All modern accounts of the war as a whole depend on the ancient sources, foremost amongst them Herodotus. Weaving together the accounts of the ancient historian Herodotus with other ancient sources, The Persian War in Herodotus and Other Ancient Voices is the engrossing story of the triumph of Greece over the mighty Persian Empire.
