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.
An influential classic and one of the earliest scholarly works of history. Enthusiastically embraced by the author's contemporaries and immediate successors. History gives an account of the war fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens) in Ancient Greece. Unlike the many appearances the Gods make in the writings of Herodotus and the poems of Homer, Thucydides sees history as being caused by the choices and actions of human beings.

In his day E. P. Roe was a bigger seller than Mark Twain.
A story of the Chicago fire.
"We accord a hearty commendation to this work. The narrative is vigorous, often intense, but rarely if ever melodramatic.
Its language is usually no less chaste than forcible and impressive.
It betrays a power of invention and description which is not met with every day in the best of writers of popular fiction."
-- Dr. Ripley, in the New York Tribune (contemporary review)
