The workshop promises to bring World War 2 Naval history to life as an interactive learning experience rather than a serious gaming competition as participants pull together knowledge of the Royal Navy and its history with their own gaming ideas. Working in teams of up to 5, they will get the chance to create their own Naval strategy board game and rules, based on the designs, capabilities and statistics of the actual vessels of WW2. Victory at Sea is an updated version of the highly successful board game, and picks up where the board game left off playing through three factual theatres of war, all based on real sea battles of WW2. The team of experts that are running the workshop, all games industry veterans, are hoping that some of the youngsters participating will aspire to work in the games industry one day. The skills that young people learn can really set them up for successful careers in computer science and design. Everyone will also receive a pre-release copy of Victory at Sea allowing them to hone their skills before the official release. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Chapter three provides a vivid reconstruction of the battle of Arginusae, ranging from the deployment of the ships of both navies to the failed rescue and recovery operation.

The author makes sense of numerous contradictions in the main primary sources, Xenophon and Diodorus, and gives a convincing analysis of some of the main scholarship on the topic. The mechanics of Athenian democracy, its court system [End Page ] and methods for holding its generals accountable occupy the fourth chapter. Just as the explanation of the trireme and naval warfare prepare the reader for discussion of the battle, the analysis of the government in Athens makes intelligible the detailed narrative of the two council meetings and two assemblies, and the trial that ended with the condemnation of the generals, discussed in chapter five.

The epilogue contains the author's reflections on what the battle and its dramatic aftermath allow modern readers to conclude about direct democracy and the culture of fifth-century Athens.

The book is a welcome addition to the extensive literature on the Peloponnesian War — which surprisingly lacks such a detailed account of this critical aspect of the war — and also a key event surrounding the trial of Socrates. This text is ideal for any upper division undergraduate course or graduate seminar that deals with either the Great War between Athens and Sparta or the trial of Socrates, as well as Athenian political thought and its legal system. Specialists in the field will enjoy the original reconstruction and interpretation of the battle and the various legal procedures.

But the book should also be welcome to the general reader, including non-specialist classicists. Perhaps the author lets the Athenians off the hook too lightly and underestimates the effect the trial of the generals had on the outcome of the war. It is quite possible that the Athenian empire was headed toward failure in the war anyway, but executing the generals no doubt hastened the downfall of the city and its empire.
