    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFIn 1850 or so Jacob Abbott wrote a series of books called Makers Of History with each of the 31 volumes describing the lives and achievements of various rulers around the world I found a partial set once at a library book sale and picked out some names that I was interested in at the time Henry V of England Hernando Cortez Alexander The Great Maybe William The Conueror too I have been wondering ever since I started the Gutenberg edition of Xerxes if I have that one also but if I do I couldn't remember Anyway I do remember being very entertained by the Abbott volumes I read and I've always kept an eye open at book sales for volumes in the series He had a way of making his subjects come to life making the reader feel as if they were actually witnessing all the major events that we had to memorize dates of in school history classesAnd that was his i

    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFI didn't know what to expect when I first started reading this book The first pages were mainly descriptive and they were a bit of a bore But then as I sank my teeth into it the book came alive Jacob Abbott is a very skilled narrator breaking down huge chunks of time into bite size bits for the history layman ie meHe starts by briefly describing Xerxes early life and lays the ground work for events that progressively occur later on in Xerxes ;life He dwells a lot on the experience that was Xerxes burning of Athens From the beginning of the tour to the surprise ending Jacob Abbott describes Xerxes’ attitude reasoning and re

    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFA decent account of the life of Xerxes Abbott seems to lack the sympathy for him that he shows to many historical figures and once again bemoans the fact that the most famous figures in history are famous for wholesale slaughter and creating vast amounts of human misery

    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFI am not familiar at all with history that goes back as far and the only time I have heard of Xerxes is what is mentioned in the book of Esther in the Old Testament That story wasn’t recounted here but through this book I learned how Esther could have been fearful for her life because Xerxes was a hard and cruel ruler I don’t know how much of this is true since the author doesn’t leave his bibliography and where he got his information This is a book about war and not much else although it does tell how Xerxes came to power as the son of Darius and the grandson of Cyrus Although this book is mainly about the invasion and destruction of Greece it doesn’t tell what else Xerxes did let alone how he lived to be 55 give or take during a time when life expectancy wasn’t what it is today especially with so much fighting Maps would have also been very convenient as geograph

    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFThis is a fairly basic introduction to Xerxes and his conuest of Greece but Jacob Abbott has a straightforward style that's highly engrossing and a joy to read No liberties have been taken in interpreting the information as presented by historians of the age Herodotus etc so it can be a bit dry in places but he does spice it up with vivid descriptions of geography and battle It certainly helped that I'd seen the famous Hollywood movie 300 so the battle at the Pass of Thermopylae where the Persians met with fierce resistance from the Spartans wasn't hard to imagineI really enjoyed this book by Jacob Abbott I will certainly be reading in the Makers of History series

    eBook Jacob Abbott ì History of Xerxes the Great PDF/EPUB î History of ì history book, xerxes book, great mobile, History of download, Xerxes the mobile, of Xerxes the download, History of Xerxes the Great PDFThis book chronicles the life and times of Xerxes I picked up the book wanting to learn about this ancient monarch Most of the book tells the story of Xerxes attack on Greece Key players in history including Leonidas of Sparta make appearances So does Artemisia the female Persian general who was highly praised by the king and forgotten by history One regret is that this copy did not contain maps Having been to Greece I was familiar with much of the layout but a map would have been sublime I also wish there would
