As I play Hellenes: Campaigns of the Peloponnesian War, I realize just how little I know about this war.

Wargames get me interested in a topic. That usually leads me to a documentary, and then a book.

So does anyone know a good Youtube documentary on the topic?

Thanks!

Not quite what you're after, but Donald Kagan's Introduction to Ancient Greek History lecture series is a available for free.

They're very good but cover a much larger time period than just the Peloponnesian War.

I'll skip the doco and recommend The Landmark Thucydides, an annotated version of the big T's epic history.

I just broke down and bought this from the Powell's sale rack. Looks really good.

you can't go wrong with the History Channel, more than twice an evening, and narrated by Liam Neeson.
