Epic book online Books by: Thucydides, C.F. Smith Thucydides of Athens one of the greatest of historians was born about BCE He saw the rise of Athens to greatness under the inspired leadership of Pericles In the second year of the Peloponnesian War he caught and survived the horrible plague which he described so graphically Later as general in he failed to save Amphipolis from the enemy and was disgraced He tells about this not in volumes of self justification but in one sentence of his history of the war that it befell him to be an exile for twenty years He then lived probably on his property in Thrace but was able to observe both sides in certain campaigns of the war and returned to Athens after her defeat in He had been composing his famous history with its hopes and horrors triumphs and disasters in full detail from first hand knowledge of his own and others br br The war was really three conflicts with one uncertain peace after the first and Thucydides had not unified them into one account when death came sometime before His history of the first conflict was nearly complete Thucydides was still at work on this when the war spread to Sicily and into a conflict likewise complete in his awful and brilliant record though not fitted into the whole His story of the final conflict of breaks off in the middle of a sentence when dealing with the year So his work was left unfinished and as a whole unrevised Yet in brilliance of description and depth of insight this history has no superior br br The Loeb Classical Library edition of Thucydides is in four volumes
