It is a testament to the fascination of the subject that even today the events of the Peloponnesian War are studied for what they can teach about diplomacy, strategy and tactics. This book reveals the darker side of Classical Greek civilization. From the horrific effects of overcrowding and the plague on the population of Athens, to the vicious civil strife that often erupted in cities allied with Athens or Sparta, this volume offers vivid and at times disturbing insights into the impact of warfare on the people who are celebrated as the founders of Western civilization.

Each book studies the origins, politics, fighting and repercussions of one major war or theatre of war, from both military and civilian perspectives. Featuring full colour maps, diagrams and photography throughout, each book in Ospreys Essential Histories series also includes pictures of contemporary artwork and artefacts, providing a full visual appreciation of how it was to live through each war. Essential Histories are an important reference resource for students, teachers, academics, history enthusiasts and hobbyists.
