Customer Review

on 30 September 1998
When I first bought this book I was a little frightened. After all, Thucydides did not write for the common man. I mean a translation of a book from Ancient Greek seemed scary to me. But once I started reading this book the pages whizzed by.The introduction is not hard to read at all and that sets the setting for the book. Strassler excellently summarizes each chapter and makes even the toughest chapters easy to understand. The appendices make the book even easier to understand and comprehend. Thucydides was actually enjoyable. The footnotes were an extra help. Even if you do not get to read everyday, Strassler's book is fun to read. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in ancient history, military history, or any other type of history. Do not be intimidated.
