9781490457734: XERXES King of Persia: Greek-Persian Wars (Medium Print) (Volume 1)

Historians consider the Greco-Persian Wars (also called the Persian Wars) a series of conflicts between the Achaemenid Empire of Persia and the Hellenic world of the Aegean sea, starting in 499 BC and ending around 449 BC. However, the true end of the wars takes place during the campaign of Alexander the Great, much later. Jacob Abbott wrote King Xerxes's biography based on ancient texts. The Persian king personally led the second invasion of Greece leading the largest army the world had ever known at that time. His initial success at Thermopylae against the Spartan King Leonidas and his 300 brave men made the Greek states come together. The stage was set for the first major war of East against West.
