This is the book for Thucydides' enthusiasts, 6 Oct 2009
A very special book to own. Reading Thucydides is a joy but some texts can leave you wondering exactly where or when events happened. Here, however, these details are available with dates and summaries on each page and frequent maps to pinpoint even obscure places. An excellent timeline is supplied with references to the text and eleven appendices to add to the understanding of the period. If you only want one book on the Peloponnesian War, this is the one to have.
