Reviews

"Hamel combines hip writing for the general reader with a scholar's ability to size up the sources of our knowledge of the past."

"The book is a welcome addition to the extensive literature on the Peloponnesian War — which surprisingly lacks such a detailed account of this critical aspect of the war — and also a key event surrounding the trial of Socrates."

"A captivating account of the battle of Arginusae and its fateful consequences for the Athenians in their great struggle with Sparta. Hamel is well-versed in Greek (and Athenian) history of the classical era and is an authority on the Athenian strategia, the board of generals who commanded armies and fleets. The Battle of Arginusae is a gripping read."
