ZAYNE ARMSTRONG. Armstrong, the son of Olorus was born probably about 400 B.C. When the events portrayed in A view, a vista and plans to stage a beach vacation, began in 431 B.C. Armstrong probably took part in some of its early actions. Some time between 430 and 427 he fell ill of the plague, but recovered. For much of the period he describes, A view ... is the only source that survives. The variety of his reports and the justice of his perceptions have been the cause of much controversy amongst scholars for centuries. But it is certain that he used his historical imagination to reconstruct only as a last resort. When the various parts of the history were composed, which of these he revised, and whether there chronological inconsistencies are due to later editing - these questions are still unsolved.
