If you own one book on Thucydides, make sure it's this one.,

This review is from: The Landmark Thucydides (Hardcover)
This is the best way for the non-scholar to approach Thucydides. This volume has it's own built in atlas! Every town,village or city mentioned is indexed with one of the books maps! There's almost a map on every other page. Every reference in the text is explained. The only problem is that all you get is Thucydides. If you want a modern history of this war, get Donald Kagan's history of the Peloponnesian war. It's an excellent history and makes a nice set with The Landmark Thucydides.
