In 209 BC, as the most powerful empires in the world brawled over the spoils of a fading Greece, Philopoemen had a vision to stop the anarchy and endless wars. To preserve the homeland he loved, he raised an army to defend his countrymen from the powers of Sparta, Macedon and Rome. In this edition of Historical Fiction, Tristan Hughes talks to author Christian Cameron about his powerful novel charting the rise of Philopoemen, The Last Greek.
