A monumental work unsurpassed for its brilliant description, accuracy, and penetrating insights, Thucydides History of the Peloponnesian War is a spectacular eyewitness report of the war between Greeces two most powerful city-states, Athens and Sparta, as it unfolded during the fifth century B.C.
The first recorded political and moral analysis of a nations war policies, the History is a tragic story of virtue, ambition, and failed deterrence. All aspects of the conflict—from the battlefield strategies and the political landscape to the peoples thoughts and feelings as the long war dragged on—are presented in startlingly vivid detail.
 
From the treachery of Alcibiades and the disastrous invasion of Sicily to the plague that devastated Athens and Pericles famous funeral oration, Thucydides has written more than a mere account of war. His History is nothing less than a classic Greek drama about the rise and fall of Athens. More than two thousand years have passed since the History was written, but its impact on modern politics, military strategy, and foreign relations has been timeless.
