In the 5th century BC, a war broke out in the eastern
Mediterranean between two powerful states. It lasted 27 years and destroyed an empire. As it began, Thucydides, an exiled general, started writing the story of what he believed would be the greatest war yet known. He has been called the world's first historian and war reporter, his book a classic account of political power, the mistakes that cause war and the tragedy of defeat.
