Editorial Reviews

"Tritle's overall aim is to make the content and context of the Peloponnesian War more accessible to those unfamiliar with classics, and on the whole I believe he succeeds. His tone throughout is quite relaxed...but for those unfamiliar with classical Greek history and/or the Peloponnesian war Tritle's book is a good starting place." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, December 2010)
"Recommended. Undergraduate libraries and above". (Choice, 1 November 2010)
