Invaders and Raiders: The Greeks are coming! Summary

Invaders and Raiders: The Greeks are coming! by Paul Mason

The terrible Ancient Greeks are coming!

Invaders and Raiders: Greeks describes how the Ancient Greeks set up a mighty empire from the viewpoint of a young Persian warrior. The hugely powerful Greek army, Greek daily life and customs are all explored against a backdrop of the famous battles of Marathon and Thermopylae. The book concludes with a look at Ancient Greece's expansion and eventual decline as the power of the Roman Empire grew. It also assesses Ancient Greece's legacy today.

Illustrated with a mix of illustrations and found objects, each book describes a great civilisation, its customs and organisations, how it began and expanded, and finally how it ended.

About Paul Mason

Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming, cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
