Thucydides

For a non-historian, this is a surprise that so detailed an account of politics, battles, personalities exists from a time so long ago. We, as humans, have not changed much in our ingenuity or our foibles.
Can't speak to the original Greek text , but this translation is very readable. Naturally the plethora of names and places is difficult to follow. But maps of the Mediterranean, as it was then, are available online, and are useful when reading.
