    For almost three decades at the end of the fifth century BC the ancient world was torn apart in a conflict that was, within its historical context, as dramatic, divisive, and destructive as the great world wars of the 20th century. The Peloponnesian War pitted Greek against Greek: the Athenians, with their glorious empire, rich legacy of democracy and political rights, and extraordinary cultural achievement, against the militaristic, oligarchic Spartan state.

    Story

    Fills in a lot of gaps and holes that Thucydides does not explain to his 5th Century Greek audience. This book should be read only if you've labored through the real thing which is also available on audible.
