‘Athens is Burning’ tells the story of the days that changed the ancient world through the eyes of those who lived through it: the leaders and those in the front line. A story of courage, betrayal and tormented love.
Following the defeat at Thermopylae the Athenians are forced to abandon their city to the Persian army. Led by Themistocles they regroup their fleet, for a last stand in the bay of Salamis. But have they been betrayed and if so who by: their enemies or their friends? What happens next will decide the fate of both Greece and democracy.
The fast paced, meticulously researched sequel to the critically acclaimed Luck Bringer and Wooden Walls of Thermopylae.
