The History of the Peloponnesian War is an account of the Peloponnesian War in Ancient Greece, fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens) in the 5th Century BC. It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian general who served in the war. It is widely considered a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books. These book divisions are the work of editors in later antiquity.W. R. Connor [...] describes Thucydides as “an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential.”
Technical quality of this recording is very poor, with long sections obscured by hissing and popping, no way to turn up sound to an adequate level. Worse, the reader cannot pronounce the words. Gets most of the names horribly wrong, including the name of the AUTHOR. This book needs to be re-recorded.
