Does History still matter?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The History of Herodotus - Complete [Annotated] [Illustrated] (Kindle Edition)
Herodotus was called the Father of History. Personally I firmly believe we can only understand where we are today by looking at where we came from. Caesar - Hero or Villain? Alexander - Genius or Megalomaniac? Napoleon - Monster or Misunderstood? These three Are " Heroes " of mine, not necessarily good or bad, but because they stamped their names into History. They have to be read about, in the context of their times, to have any hope of understanding the WHY of them, and why, still today, their names still loom large in HISTORY.

Nice to hear your very firmly held believes, Eric - but what about the book?
