Basil Gildersleeve's long and colorful career as a soldier and professor of Classics is almost as interesting as his careful and foundational work on the structure and grammar of Ancient Greek and editions of several works in both Greek and Latin. In this essay, he outlines and reviews Stahl's Syntax des griechischen Verbums der klassischen Zeit, a seminal work in the German tradition of grammatical studies in the 19th century. Gildersleeve's overview proves an excellent guide to this important work on Greek grammar and does much to guide anyone who is in a position to consult it.
