Description

The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus is considered the first work of history in Western literature. Written about 440 BC, The Histories tells the story of the Greco-Persian Wars between the Achaemenid Empire and the Greek city-states in the 5th century BC.

The Histories is divided into nine books, each named after one of the Muses. The rise of the Persian Empire is chronicled, and the causes for the conflict with Greece.

To say this is a classic masterpiece would be a major understatement. This is the work that made Herodotus the father of History, a masterpiece that everyone should read at least once in their lives, learning the beautiful stories of the ancient ages.
