No need to listen to this whole thing, but from about 20 mins to 50 mins listen to the chapter on the naval campaign of Xerxes invasion. It varies in detail from most current interpretations but when one realises it was written in 1911 ( not the JR Hale of 'Lords of the Sea'!) this is understandable. The reader massacres the pronounciation of Greek/Persian names as deftly as the Greeks do the Persian ships but it is decent background for a painting session. Can also be found on Project Gutenberg.
