Can't read the maps, words are cut off at the margins. Save your money.

Thucydides' Pellopanesian war is unarguably one of the greatest and most studied classical works of history. However, it is a book hard to follow, with lots of lands, cities and names to remember.The Landmark Thucydides includes many maps, footnotes and appendixes which help your understanding and enjoyment of this timeless, outstanding work.

The original author, buttressed and elucidated by the Editor Robert Strassler, have combined to make a genuine classic a reference work anyone would be thrilled to read and remember. This is ancient nitty-gritty of a nation well supplemented by modern place maps and explanations. If you miss this book, you miss an important part of history told by perhaps the two best reporters. Thucyides excelled in his history writing and Strassler couple an interpretation to the original work that is a thing of beauty. You greatly deprive yourself by passing on this fabulous book. Get it, read it, re-read it again and again. You will never regret your purchase.
