Product description

Review

Matyszak's account of the Sicilian campaign is a pleasure to read. An intelligently composed, well-paced and dramatic account of this important side-theater of the Peloponnesian war. Ancient Warfare It is easily accessible to a broader audience - demonstrates the Athenian hubris and invokes the motif of Nemesis, a recurring theme not only in Matyzak's work - He uses a modern and easily understandable translation - He paints a lively and believable picture of their characters - In his lively, witty and highly enjoyable prose, Matyszak then goes on to describe the history of events - he touches every relevant event ... he strives to give his readers a clear picture of the situations and interests of the other parties involved in the conflict - the reader gains a little insight into fascinating subjects - a pleasure to read - intelligently composed, well - paced and dramatic account of this important side - theatre. --Ancient Warfare
