Thucydides

Thucydides was a Greek historian who was born in Alimos between the years 460 and 455 B.C and died between 411 and 400 B.C. He is known for his book The History of the Peloponnesian War which details the war between Sparta and Athens in the 5th Century.

The differences between Herodotus and Thucydides are in style, interpretation and purpose. Herodotus passes no judgement, but reports what he has heard, even when plainly ridiculous. .Thucydides is reporting on war, and war alone.
