Another fine Osprey book covering ancient greek warships from 500-322BC with sections on origins, design, construction, crew, armament and tactics, the Athenian navy, key battles, and the Olympias modern reconstruction project. A mix of colour reconstruction illustrations and colour and black and white photos enrich this volume and include depictions in greek art - pottery and sculpture - and geographical locations and close-up details of the Olympias - a full scale, working reconstruction of an Athenian 4th century BC trireme. The only negative is at less than fifty pages, the reader is left wanting more.
