The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides Translated by
Richard Crawley Brand New Copy Complete Thucydides, an Athenian,
wrote the history of the war between the Peloponnesians and the
Athenians, beginning at the moment that it broke out, and believing
that it would be a great war and more worthy of relation than any
that had preceded it. This belief was not without its grounds. The
preparations of both the combatants were in every department in the
last state of perfection; and he could see the rest of the Hellenic
race taking sides in the quarrel; those who delayed doing so at
once having it in contemplation. Indeed this was the greatest
movement yet known in history, not only of the Hellenes, but of a
large part of the barbarian world-I had almost said of mankind. For
though the events of remote antiquity, and even those that more
immediately preceded the war, could not from lapse of time be
clearly ascertained, yet the evidences which an inquiry carried as
far back as was practicable leads me to trust, all point to the
conclusion that there was nothing on a great scale, either in war
or in other matters.
