Godfrey Hutchinson is an historian educated at the Universities of Durham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. His main area of expertise is that of warfare and leadership in the Classical and Hellenistic periods. He is the author of Xenophon and the Art of Command and Attrition: Aspects of Command in the Peloponnesian War.
"Let us start with the main point - if you arE looking for a book which tells you what happened immediately after the Peloponnesian War which ended in 404 BC, this is probably the best book for the job... The overall text is rather like the Parson's egg. However, while that egg was 'good in parts', this book is excellent in parts, good in most of the rest, and pedestrian only on rare occasions. There are many books on Sparta in print - and this is definitely one of the better ones."--UNRV
