Nnotated Bibliography on The Peloponessian War
I have preselected 7 citations about the Peloponnesian War for my Annotated Bibliography project for my 11th grade World History course. Because I have already completed one to show as an example, I need the writer to write 6 annotations at 150-250 words each. These annotations need to include a brief explanation and critical analysis (approximately 150 words) of the credibility of the source, its purpose, and how it relates to the topic (its significance).

Bagnall, Nigel. The Peloponnesian War: Athens, Sparta and the Struggle for
Greece. New York: Thomas Dunne, 2006. Print.
This book written by Nigal Bagnall, who was a former chief in the British Army and academic researcher of the Peloponnesian war. The Peloponnesian War: Athens, Sparta, and the Struggle for Greece attempts to shed light on the subject by providing accurate and detailed contextual information as well as a more objective view than various sources may be able to provide. The majority of the book is spent talking in depth about important topics preceding the war, such the Persian wars. However, he does not refrain from writing about the smaller, less memorable battles. By explaining the war with an extensive background and an overview of important political stances between the Spartans and Athenians, we are able to look at the Peloponnesian war in a fresh, new light. This book proves useful for finding contextual information, as well as some detailed information of military tactics during and preceding this war.
