Description

War has been a fact of life for centuries on end.  By lucidly revealing the common threads that connect the ancient confrontations between Athens and Sparta and between Rome and Carthage with the two calamitous world wars of the twentieth century and the Cuban Missile Crisis, renowned historian Donald Kagan reveals new and surprising insights into the nature of war--and peace--that are vitally important.  His vivid accounts should help alert us to the dangers of complacency and serve as a warning to our preparedness in times of peace.
