William Shepherd concisely yet vividly recounts one of the largest and most important land battles of pre-20th century history in Plataea 479 BC: The Most Glorious Victory Ever Seen ... The author's detailed reconstruction of Plataea campaign draws from ancient sources (predominantly Herodotus), close scrutiny of the battlefield and fairly recent studies of hoplite warfare. Wonderful color plates by Peter Dennis highlight the illustrations and maps that enliven this 96-page paperback.
