A book that is based on the the Spartan culture and the battle at Thermopylae against the Persian invasion.

 

The book is in an interesting format. It is told by the soul survivor of the Spartan 300 battle group after the battle at the Hell Gate. He is recounting his tale to the Persian King Xerxes himself.

 

It is essentially the story from the movie 300 but it is very detailed. 

 

As far a historical fiction goes this book has a elevated tone of philosophy and leadership lessons in it. An excellent read and would definitely put it on my recommendation list going forward.
