It's fifth century Greece and you, the reader, are a young boy growing up under your father's direction. At the age of six your toys are taken away and you begin your schooling, your physical training and eventually your two years as a soldier. Or maybe your father will decide to send you off to train for the Olympics? Will you have what it takes to survive the training...or maybe even win for your country?
History comes alive in these comic illustrations and over the top descriptions of the challenges of ancient life in Greece.
