Persian Fire: The First World Empire and the Battle for the West is a historical study of the Persian Empire by popular historian Tom Holland, first published in.
Tom Holland Sicherlich keine neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse, aber ich kann mir keinen besseren Einstieg in die Thematik vorstellen als dieses Buch. For Jamie and Caroline Maps and a timeline, foot notes, diagrams and glossy colour photographs. This book is supposed to be a work of non-fiction but in reality it reads faster than fiction! Knowing that it is futile, why do men and women struggle for this momentary blaze of glory? The thing is though that this is not work of fiction, but retelling of historical events.
