Reader's Union, Newton Abbot, 1975, Book Club edition. 
211 pp, 8vo (8 1/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "...reads on occasion like a suspense thriller, as (Lloyd) tells of the clash between two great civilisations at Marathon, the battle which in so many ways settled the course of histor y for the Western world. On a plain twenty-two miles from Athens, 9,000 Greek citizens, part-time warriors only, defended their city against Darius and his army of 30,000. The Persians had already subdued the Greek colonies in Asia Minor a n d T h r a c e, and intended to install Hippias as puppet-king in Athens. A yet fragile Athenian democracy might also have to face insurrection from within..."
