Persian Fire

Tom Holland, author of Persian Fire resurrects when the King of Persia invaded mainland Greece.


Tom Holland’s brilliant new book Persian Fire describes the very first ‘clash of empires’ between East and West when Xerxes, the King of Persia led an invasion of mainland Greece. Holland, author of the best selling Rubicon: the triumph and tragedy of the Roman Republic, has again found extraordinary parallels between the ancient world and our own. In collaboration with Little, Brown.
