User Review - Flag as inappropriate This book is one of the worst books that I have ever read.

Oxford, Clarendon Press, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Ingram Bywater. This history book did a fairly good job explaining the greek history.

However, it only has 4 very poor maps in a + page HISTORY text. In the text there were many references to cities, regions and countries related to significant events, but those places were not shown on any of the maps.
