The Histories is considered the first work of history in Western literature. Written about 440 BCE it tells the story of the war between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states in the 5th century BCE. The histories includes the Battle of Thermopylae where 1400 Greeks under King Leonidas of Sparta sacrificed themselves to delay a Persian army of at least hundreds of thousands, an act that sealed the eventual fate of the Persians.
