Song of Wrath: The Peloponnesian War Begins Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Song of Wrath tells the story of Classical Athens victorious Ten Years War (431– 421 BC) against grim Sparta—the first decade of the terrible Peloponnesian War that turned the Golden Age of Greece to lead. Historian J.E. Lendon presents a sweeping tale of pitched battles by land and sea, sieges, sacks, raids, and deeds of cruelty and guile—along with courageous acts of mercy, surprising charity, austere restraint, and arrogant resistance. Recounting the rise of democratic Athens to great-power status, and the resulting fury of authoritarian Sparta, Greeces traditional leader, Lendon portrays the causes and strategy of the war as a duel over national honor, a series of acts of revenge. A story of new pride challenging old, Song of Wrath is the first work of Ancient Greek history for the post-cold-war generation.

Synopsis:

A prize-winning classicists thrilling account of the Ten Years War—the first stage of the Peloponnesian War
