History of the Peloponnesian War

Thucydides (Book - 1972 )
Average Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
History of the Peloponnesian War


Item Details

Written four hundred years before the birth of Christ, this detailed contemporary account of the struggle between Athens and Sparta stands an excellent chance of fulfilling the author's ambitious claim that the work "was done to last forever." The conflicts between the two empires over shipping, trade, and colonial expansion came to a head in 431 b.c. in Northern Greece, and the entire Greek world was plunged into 27 years of war. Thucydides applied a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance in compiling this exhaustively factual record of the disastrous conflict that eventually ended the Athenian empire. .

(431–411 B.C.) “This detailed contemporary account of the conflicts between the two empires over shipping, trade, and colonial expansion came to a head in 431 B.C. in Northern Greece, and the entire Greek world was plunged into 27 years of war. Thucydides applied a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance in compiling this exhaustively factual record of the disastrous conflict that eventually ended the Athenian empire.” We recommend particularly The Landmark Thucydides: a Comprehensive Guide to the Peloponnesian War for its maps, photographs of sites, annotations and index.
