I'm doing a quick dive into three ancient empires - Assyria, Babylon, and Persia.

My Thoughts

Billed as the “Persian Version,” Lloyd Llewelyn-Jones presents an exhilarating, complex, and rich history of this fascinating empire. You’ve heard the names – Cyrus, Xerxes, and Darius. Here are their stories. The family intrigues, the empire building. The wars, gruesome executions, and poisonings. A great book about one of the great empires of antiquity.
