Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Greece, then pay attention...

Three captivating manuscripts in one audiobook:

  • History of Greece: A Captivating Guide to Greek History, Starting from the Bronze Age in Ancient Greece Through the Classical and Hellenistic Period to the Modern Era
  • Classical Greece: A Captivating Guide to an Era in Ancient Greece That Strongly Influenced Western Civilization, Starting from the Persian Wars and Rise of Athens to the Death of Alexander the Great
  • Modern Greece: A Captivating Guide to the History of Greece, Starting from the Greek War of Independence Through the Balkan Wars, World War I and II, to the Present

The ancient Greeks loom large in legend and lore. In ancient myth, names such as Hercules, Achilles, and Prometheus scream out to us from the primordial past. Who are these strange, mysterious figures? More importantly, who were they to the Greeks? Greek mythology provides a key to Greek culture itself.

The Greeks always valued noble virtues such as courage and strength, which was reflected in their ancient mythologies. And these same strains of character can be seen interwoven throughout Greek history itself. Even when the chips were down, the Greeks stood strong against insurmountable odds.

The Greeks battled Persians, Macedonians, Romans, and Ottomans, and although they didn’t always win the wars of the battlefield, they almost always won over the hearts and minds of the conquered and conquerors alike. Greek culture was so strong that it was passed around the world like a valued commodity by whoever just so happened to come into contact with it.

Narration very disappointing

I’m not sure whether the content is excellent or it because the narration is so bad that it’s unlistenable. The narrator reads as if he’s talking to a group of third graders.

greek history

this was a book bundle of three different books and they were all very good. I enjoyed learning about the Persian wars, and the death of Alexandar the great.
