    1. I once was in the U.S. Army. As part of our job we were always encouraged to study history to see how people thought and wars were executed. No war is ever the same so what we are reading to learn is the why. There is also how people responded to different tactics and strategies.I found this easy to read as the translation made it appear like we were reading today's news. Not just the actins but the politics of the time. There are great descriptions of the time and place. The only thing that is [...]

    3. Both Thucydides and Herodotus do a fine job as chroniclers of their time. Both describe military actions in which major powers overextended themselves and wound up "getting their butts kicked." Herodotus described how Xerxes invasion of the Hellenic islands led to a smashing defeat for the Persians. Thucydides dealt with the Athenian's attempt to spread its empire to Sicily, where their army took a trouncing by Syracuse. Perhaps modern nations might have been well served by reading the works of [...]

    4. David Grene is also one of the editors or the U. of Chicago Greek Tragedies series, and has edited this with the same respect for tradition. I needn't comment on the texts, except to remark that Hobbs was a formidable translator as well as a brilliant writer. Reading these texts in this beautifully bound set was an extra pleasure. If you see a good used copy of this, pick it up. It's a wonderful addition to any library.

    5. Lazenby's study of the Peloponnesian war is well worth the price. Tons of grist for the mill of any serious scholar; professional in the military sense as well as the academic sense; insightful. The book provides a fresh view of ground I had previously thought well-traveled. Analysis worthy of any published on current military battles. Buy it; put it in your arsenal. Use it when you're researching or just read it for fun.

    6. Contrary to statements by other reviewers, I can report that this text is properly formatted, at least on a Kindle 3. The lines are occasionally short, but only because the following word is long, and Kindle can not break and hyphenate words. That said, I find it very legible.A serious student will be disappointed by the absence of book and section numbers, the standard way of making reference to passages in this classic text.

    7. I had to order this book for a class. It has been the best so far in all the books we have had to read for that class. Shipping was fantastic! The book was in very good condition and the price was good also.
