Rank #4: Naval History Podcast Episode 7

Podcast cover
Read more
In Episode 7 of Naval History Podcast, we conclude our coverage of the Peloponnesian War with a study of the Decelean War, during which most of the naval action shifts back to the Aegean. During this most violent phase of the war, the Persian Empire intervenes in an effort to gain power in the region, bankrolling Sparta and protracting the war, even as Athens, still predominant at sea, struggles to survive. Notable commanders include The competent, unsung Thrasybulus and the flawed Conon (on the Athenian side); the capable but unfortunate Mindarus and the reckless Callicratidas (on the Spartan side); and, shifting his allegiances as he sees fit, the psychopath Alcibiades. All of these men, and thousands of other Greeks, struggle for their empires and for their lives as the long, bloody Peloponnesian War at last nears its violent climax.

In Episode 6 of Naval History Podcast, we continue our multi-part examination of the Peloponnesian War with Athens's ill-fated Sicilian Expedition of 415-13 BC, in which the Athenians send a massive expeditionary force to attack and possibly conquer the island of Sicily. During this epic struggle between the Athenians, the Syracusans, and their respective allies. We also meet such characters as the overly cautious and indecisive Athenian general Nicias; his fellow general Alcibiades, one of the first psychopaths known to history; and the daring Spartan commander Gylippus. The disaster that befell the Sicilian Expedition was perhaps the beginning of the downfall of the Athenian empire and set the stage for the final horrific phase of the Peloponnesian War.
