    My second Kagan history book. Not bad overall. It's not dry and Kagan does a good job (of what I assume is) presenting lots of information from the war. A few parts of the book did seem to move slowly, but part of me wishes I could go back in time to see those boats and crew rowin...

    Meant more for a scholar than a casual reader This book, nevertheless, is clear and concise. That is if you overlook all those Greek names ! I learned a bit about Ancient Greece as well how the leaders of both the Athenians and the Spartans conducted a war. ...
