Book Description:
Thukydides beschrieb den Peloponnesischen Krieg (431 bis 404 v. Chr.) zwischen dem von Athen geführten Attischen Seebund und dem Peloponnesischen Bund unter Sparta bis zum Jahr 411 v. Chr. Er bemühte sich um eine genaue Ermittelung der Tatsachen und wertfreie Darstellung von Ursachen und Wirkungen. Daher gilt er als Begründer einer objektiven Geschichtswissenschaft.
