jeff Posted on: Today at 08:06:39pm <br />you're not alone on enjoying Greek and Latin history.<br /><br />My favorite is Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesean War, a book that gets better and better as the reader understands all the under currents of Athenian and Spartan history, politics and culture. It's a very excited account with so many highs and lows suffered on all sides. Thucydides provides countless insights into how groups act under stress, suffering, sickness, arrogance, fear, bravery and hope. <br /><br /><br />I have to agree with you, I picked up a copy of it this summer in a good used book store (which has now closed
). Its called The Landmark Thucycdides ISBN 0684827905, I like this edition so much because of the fantastic (and accurate!) maps they have included as well as marginal notes on each page.
