      Aug 25,  · The entire Greek world plunged into three decades of bloodshed in B.C., when the ongoing friction between Athens and Sparta exploded into war. Ten years into the struggle, the Athenian general Thucydides was dismissed for a military failure that led to a triumph for posterity: the former general retired to write an account of the war, resulting in one of the world's great history books. Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is an account of the war fought between the Peloponnesian League (Sparta and its allies) and the Delian .

      Oct 02,  · CHAPTER 1. The State of Greece from the earliest Times to the Commencement of the Peloponnesian War. THUCYDIDES, an Athenian, wrote the history of the war between the Peloponnesians and the Athenians, beginning at the moment that it broke out, and believing that it would be a great war, and more worthy of relation than any that had preceded it.5/5. Jan 01,  · One of the world's great history books and the first true historical narrative of Western literature, Thucydides' chronicle of the disastrous year conflict between Athens and Sparta resonates with tales of heroism and villainy, deeds of courage and desperation, and the eternal folly of human conflict. Scrupulously impartial and accurate. 5 maps.

      BOOK III 1. IN the following summer, when the corn was in full ear, the Peloponnesians and their allies, 1 under the command of Archidamus, the son of Zeuxidamus, the Lacedaemonian 2 king, invaded Attica, and encamping wasted the country. [2] The Athenian cavalry as usual attacked them whenever an opportunity offered, and prevented the great body of the light-armed troops from going beyond. This book should be called The History of Athens During the Peloponnesian War for while it is generally agreed that this war was fought between two huge blocs lead by Athens and Sparta, it has a very thorough description of the history of Athens during the period and much less about Sparta/5.
