Jeff Champion studied Classics and Ancient History at the University of Western Australia, achieving a First Class degree. During his subsequent career with the Australian Customs Service his interest in the ancient world never waned. He has travelled extensively in the Mediterranean, visiting Classical sites with his long-suffering wife. He is the author of Pyrrhus of Epirus (2009) and the two-volume The Tyrants of Syracuse (2010 and 2012), were all published by Pen & Sword Books and received much praise. He lives in his native Western Australia.
...shed a large and new light on the history of the people and eras that they represent. It is far time that we have a biography of one of the greatest men of Hellenistic society....he author has had to piece together the life of Antigonus from the many scraps that we are left from the ancient historians. Unfortunately, the ancient authors jumped about like a cat being teased with a laser. Their accounts of different years hop around the ancient world from year to year without really following a clear path through any kingdom or person's life. Mr. Champion is to be congratulated for his detective work in bringing the lives he has to our attention, and hopefully prodded to bring more out of the dustbin. --A Wargamers Needful Things
