The battle of Salamis was a great naval victory for the Athenian-allied navy over the Persian navy, ultimately saving the
Athenians from defeat and enslavement.

This book is a very detailed account of the campaign with emphasis on the final naval engagement. It captures the risks taken by the Athenians, the tricks used to keep their alliance with other Greek city-states intact, and the ultimate strategy that led to their victory, even though they were outnumbered at one point by about 10 to 1.
