Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Clearly, I'm just reading these to irritate my friends in Chicago. It's another Osprey, this one dealing in ancient history.

Osprey Campaign #261: Pylos and Sphacteria 425 BC: Sparta's Island of Disaster deals with Athens beating Sparta when their navy could isolate an island and bring their troops to bear on the Spartans. There's a lot of photography in this book of the battlefield now that makes it much easier to visualize the fight.
