bookshelves: history

Strauss does an excellent job describing and interpreting battles; however, he makes two major mistakes that should never appear in books of history: 1) he applies 21st century morals to cultures that are incredibly different than modern cultures, and 2) he presumes to know what emotions and motivations ancient persons experienced when there is no factual evidence to make such judgements.
