This review is from: The Histories (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
As a student of Ancient Greece, it would be presumptuous for me to comment on Herodotus. I can only say that this is a must for any student of Ancient History. I would also suggest that a superb back-up to this book is that of Tom Holland - "Persian Fire". Some of the gaps left by the 'wanderings' of Herodotus, are very well filled in by Holland.
