About this title


From the raids of mountain guerillas and local village uprisings, to the first great sea battles of small island fleets, to the siege of Tripolitza, Petrakis has recreated the Greek War of Independence from Turkey. This epic story interweaves tales of stunning cruelty and heroism, of compassion, love, sacrifice, ambition and betrayal-on both sides of the conflict.

From the Publisher:

"In a time when the anti-hero, anti-story and anti-talent are the vogue, Harry Mark Petrakis has the courage to bring out an epic rich in tension, action and heroism, the zests of life...which will endure as a remarkable literary achievement."-Isaac Bashevis Singer
