Two manuscripts in one book:

- History of Greece: An Enthralling Overview of Greek History
- Greek Mythology: An Enthralling Overview of Greek Myths, Gods, and Goddesses

This concise overview covers Greece’s Stone Age and Bronze Age civilizations, its archaic and classical eras, its centuries under Roman rule, and the fascinating Byzantine Empire. It travels through Greece’s period under the Turkish Ottoman Empire, then its emancipation and formation of a parliamentary democracy that continued into the 20th century.

The first part of the book will answer about Greece’s riveting history:

- How did a catastrophic volcanic eruption impact Greece’s first advanced civilization?
- Did the Trojan War really happen?
- How did the Greeks defeat the Persians’ million-man army?
- Which classical Greeks theorized that constantly moving atoms form all matter?
- How did Alexander the Great conquer the Persian Empire in less than a decade?

Greek mythology has, without a doubt, some of the most well-known legends in the world. Like most people, the Olympians had their fair share of family drama. This part of the book pays strict attention to the genealogy of the Greek gods and the relationships they had with one another, whether they were good, bad, or incestuous.

In the second part of this book, you will discover:

- The intriguing relationships between gods, men, demi-gods, and monsters
- The connection between divinity and weakness. Not only men make mistakes; even seemingly perfect beings screw up regularly.
- The importance of love as a guiding force of nature and life in general
- A practical understanding of the motivations of both men and gods behind their less-than-honorable actions
