Xerxes - Jacob Abbott


Author Jacob Abbott

A decent account of the life of Xerxes. 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.
