The Greek and Persian Armies, 500-323 B.C. Paperback
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
In the early 5th century BC, after the fall of the Lydian Empire, the Persian Wars began.
It was an ideological conflict which pitted a proud, democratic, freedom-loving people against a tyrannical and mighty empire.
The stories of the many battles fought between the Greeks and the Persians are here spendidly brought to life by Jack Cassin-Scott, who details the tactics, organisation and uniforms of the armies of both sides in a volume featuring numerous illustrations and museum photographs, plus eight full page colour plates superbly drawn by the author himself.

Review by ksmyth
Too big of a topic, and not enough time to do more than give a snippet of coverage. A typical enough Osprey fault.
