The Western world has been deeply influenced by Greek civilization, even to this day. We may not know it, but we owe much of what we are today to Hellenistic Greece.
With its importance in mind, we have decided to create a free collection of Greek history books in PDF format. All with the aim of acquainting our readers with one of the first documented histories of the world.
Greek philosophy, art, culture and democracy formed the basis of Western civilization, along with the Roman heritage. It was an empire that captivated other empires, which contributed to the fact that its heritage was not lost. In order for you to update this knowledge on such an interesting subject, it is essential that you start by consulting our books on the history of Greece, free of charge.
The Greek Empire would reach its best time in the Hellenistic period, where Philip II of Macedon achieved peace and harmony among the poleis. Without failing to recognize the great deeds of his son Alexander the Great. During this period a model of civilization was consolidated that is still exemplary today, as well as the moment when the political, cultural, juridical and economic foundations were laid that would steal the attention of the Romans.
Hellenistic and Imperial Greece would see its end with the conquest of Egypt by the Roman Empire. Then came periods of foreign domination until the achievement of its independence in 1829. Today, Greece is a country like any other, with its ups and downs, but it will always remain in the collective imagination as one of the greatest nations in the history of mankind.
We invite you to continue exploring the history of this wonderful country by reading our more than 20 Greek history books in PDF format, a mandatory study if you want to enrich your cultural knowledge.
