Commonly acknowledged as one of the earliest first-hand written
accounts of history, this classic work chronicles the war between Athens
and Sparta during the fifth century B.C. Its author, Thucydides,
dispassionately and accurately describes the events of this ancient
Greek war in a strict chronology which includes the causes of the
conflict, descriptions of battlefield strategy, political opinions, and
all other aspects of the war in the brilliant detail of an intellectual
and observant eyewitness. Himself an Athenian general who served in the
war, Thucydides relates the invasions, treacheries, plagues, amazing
speeches, ambitions, virtues, and emotions of the conflict between two
of Greece’s most dominant city-states in a work that has the feel of a
great tragic drama. Though, in part an analysis of war policy, “The
History” is also a dramatic account of the rise and fall of Athens by an
Athenian. As such, it provides a historical warning for modern
military, political, and international relations. This edition is
translated by Richard Crawley and is printed on premium acid-free
