Review: Lords of the Sea: The Epic Story of the Athenian Navy & the Birth of Democracy

Lords of the Sea: The Epic Story of the Athenian Navy & the Birth of Democracy
Lords of the Sea: The Epic Story of the Athenian Navy & the Birth of Democracy by John R. Hale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fascinating and engaging book! I basically couldn’t stop listening to it — I wanted to know ever more about the rise of this ancient naval superpower. I may be biased towards Sparta and the Peloponnese in general, but this book really was wonderful.
