Nicias and the Sicilian Expedition by Alfred J. Church
The Sicilian Expedition was the greatest debacle of the Peloponnesian War, and did more to destroy the empire of Athens than any other event. Church follows Thucydides' account faithfully and provides great insight into the internal politics of Athens during this period, as well as detailed accounts of important battles and the character of the Athenian generals. The books should be of great interest to anyone who enjoys military history.
