  •  The Peloponnesian War
  • By: Abhiram pinnity
  • Tensions Rise
  • The Athens Navy
  • War Breaks Out
  • In addition to societal differences, Sparta resented Athens’s use of money from the Delian League. Remember, Athens had used this money, intended to protect all of the city-states, for its own benefit. When the city-states protested this inequality and attempted to free themselves from Athenian rule, Pericles punished them. By 431 B.C.,Sparta had had enough of Athenian aggression and declared war on Athens. The Peloponnesian War had begun
  • Plague killing 1 in every 3 Athenian caution
  • Sparta had a strong army and Athens had a strong navy. This contrast in military strength forced the two sides to develop very different plans for winning the war. Athens, under Pericles, avoided fighting Sparta and its allies on land and planned to attack from the sea.

  • Sparta had a strong army and Athens had a strong navy. This contrast in military strength forced the two sides to develop very different plans for winning the war. Athens, under Pericles, avoided fighting Sparta and its allies on land and planned to attack from the sea.
  • Athens withdrew behind its strong city walls.  Meanwhile, Sparta marched its army into Athenian lands expecting a big battle, but the Athenian army stayed protected behind the city walls. The frustrated Spartans attempted to weaken the Athenian economy by burning its crops. Though the walls protected Athenians from the Spartans, they could not prevent a devastating attack from an unexpected enemy.
  • In 412B.C.,Sparta strengthened its forces by allying with its old enemy Persia. The Spartan army steadily advanced on Athens, deliberately causing refugees to flee to the already overcrowded city. Blocked by Spartans on land and sea, a desperate Athens had only two choices: surrender or starve. In 404B.C.,Athens surrendered and the Peloponnesian War was finally over. (The Spartans sank all 200of Athens’s ships, and killed or enslaved 40,000 soldiers.)
