What is the importance of written history by Herodotus?

He is important because he set the pace for history to be written with logic and facts; (although some things he wrote people can agree are far fetched) that's why hes called the father of history. Herodotus is considered the father OS history because his history of the Persian War was the first narrative in the form that later came out be considered written history.
