Thucydides on Strategy
Lecture no. 2 from the course: Masters of War: History's Greatest Strategic Thinkers
Taught by Professor Andrew R. Wilson | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Take a systematic look at what makes Thucydides perhaps history’s first great strategist. In his analysis of the Peloponnesian War, he examines the political origins of the war, the Spartan and Athenian leadership, and the social and moral implications of war—all in an effort to prevent future generations from repeating Athens’ mistakes.
