Against a background of treachery and violence Miltiades fights his battles in the courts and councils while Mandrocles fights his in the streets, theatre, bars and brothels. As the Persian threat grows and the danger within threatens Miltiades chooses to fight at marathon where the ragged citizen army, including some of the greatest figures in the ancient world faces the overwhelming might of the Persian Immortals in 24 hours that changed history.
