Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

An epic story of passion, courage and adventure in ancient Sparta, by the author of the Alexander trilogy. Herodotus tells us that not all of the three hundred Spartan warriors died at the hands of Xerxes, King of the Persians, in the battle of the Thermopylae: two were saved bringing a life-saving message back to the city...This is the saga of a Spartan family, torn apart by a cruel law that forces them to abandon one of their two sons - born lame - to the elements. The elder son, Brithos, is raised in the caste of the warriors, while the other, Talos, is spared a cruel death and is raised by a Helot shepherd, among the peasants. They live out their story in a world dominated by the clash between the Persian empire and the city-states of Greece - a ferocious, relentless conflict - until the voice of their blood and of human solidarity unites them in a thrilling, singular enterprise.

Rezension:

Michael Curtis Ford

Author of "The Ten Thousand, Gods and Legions," and "The Last King"

The Persian Wars, the Battle of Thermopylae, the revolt of the Helots -- history is replete with astonishing feats and riveting heroism, and Manfredi's novel does his material proud. With the vivid characterization and heart-stopping action he showed us in his Alexander trilogy, Manfredi brings us back once again to the beauty and brutality, the nobility and cruelty of ancient Greece, and in the process gives us a thought-provoking look at the roots of our own civilization.



Bernard Cornwell

"New York Times" bestselling author of "Heretic" and the Sharpe series

"Spartan" is an intelligent, knowledgeable, and entertaining story, as much an education as an entertainment.



Dino DeLaurentiis

Producer of "Red Dragon"

Valerio Massimo Manfredi is a uniquely great writer who, like the celebrated masters of the past, can create important historical novels while still making them easy and exciting to read. Once you start reading books like "Spartan" or the Alexander trilogy, you simply can t put them down.
