PDF: "Alcibiades the Deserter: P. Oxy. III 411 Col. IV. 98" by K. Mayer, ZPE 1998.

The Persian Wars by Livio C. Stecchini. From prior experience I know that he's somewhat of a nut, but if I can't convince you maybe his Numerological pyramid-foolery will.

Amazon. The Greco-Persian Wars by Peter Green (1996). Rave customer reviews. Also available in hardcover. See the UC Press blurb.

Reviewed by J. O'Neil for Electronic Antiquity, 1997. A positive review, with some criticism of the lack of footnotes.

Review by Danny Yee for "Danny Yee's Book Reviews."

"While The Greco-Persian Wars is a scholarly volume (with the full apparatus of notes and bibliography), it has the feel of more popular writing: one can sense Green's other calling as a historical novelist."
