The title is a bit misleading since Rodgers delves more deeply into art and architecture and other aspects of Greece in addition to military affairs thus it is more of a basic survey of highlighting military affairs. The text is sparse but the emphasis is really on a illustrated survey of Greece military history highlighting the leading personalities and city-states of ancient Greece. In this case, I would not state that this is an "authoritative" guide but more of a introduction.
