    This course is an AMAZING gift. I have listened all the way through at least 3 times. It lead me to read almost all of Kagan’s books. Especially “Men of Bronze”. It also was the spark that got me to return to school to complete a degree in History with a focus on Ancient Greece and Rome. Professor Kagan – if you are listening….thank you. I owe you a huge debt.
