History of the Peloponnesian War
The long life-and-death struggle between Athens and Sparta plunged the ancient Greek world into decades of war. Thucydides was an Athenian and achieved the rank of general in the earlier stages of the war, and in this detailed, first-hand contemporary account he writes as both a soldier and a historian. He applies a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance in compiling a factual record of a ruinous conflict that would eventually destroy the Athenian empire. He took a small part in the Peloponnesian War when it broke out in BC. Some of the chronological inconsistencies have been the cause of controversy among scholars for centuries. Rex Warner was a classical scholar of Wadham College, Oxford.
