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.

Thucydides is an essential read by everyone who loves history. I am in my fourth read since my first encounter more than thirty years; the Landmark Thucydides would have made my first read in college understandable. Every young person should be given Landmark Thucydides when first reading this great work. It brings to life the Peloponnesian War through maps and foot notes like no other edition I have read. Thucydides is like the Bible it must be read again and again, for as the old saying goes; those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

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.
