Barry Strauss, author of The Spartacus War and Professor of History at Cornell University
"Ancient military history is hot these days. Song of Wrath is the latest book to show the value of a great story, told with skill by a talented historian and gifted writer armed with a powerful idea. It is learned, readable, and passionate."

Donald Kagan, Sterling Professor of Classics and History at Yale University and author of Thucydides: The Reinvention of History
"J.E. Lendon has written a lively, learned and fascinating account and interpretation of the coming of the Peloponnesian War and the first ten years of the fighting. In Song of Wrath he explains the course of events as emerging chiefly from the values of the ancient Greeks, who cherished rank, honor and vengeance more than is recognized by modern experts in international relations and war."

Tom Holland, author of Rubicon
"Beautifully written and unfailingly informative: scholarship has rarely conveyed such a sense of visceral excitement."

Adrian Goldsworthy, author of Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra
"Well written and insightful. In Song of Wrath, J.E. Lendon discusses not simply how the Athenians and Spartans fought, but how they thought. This book demonstrates that a good story can also be good history."
