Description

The ancient classic--also known as The March of the Ten Thousand or The March Up Country--now in an elegantly designed, newly translated, definitive edition that features illuminating annotations, and copious maps and illustrations.

Xenophon's Anabasis is one of the greatest true-life adventure stories ever recorded. Ten thousand Greek soldiers were stranded deep in hostile Persia and their commander was dead. They appointed Xenophon as their new leader, and he chronicled their harrowing journey as he led the "marching republic" north to the Black Sea. As with the other volumes in the Landmark series, this edition--edited by Robert B. Strassler and Shane Brennan--supplements the text with detailed maps, images, and annotations that place the work in historical context. With its stunning endpapers and enlightening illustrations, this beautifully produced, large-format hardcover will make a perfect gift for history buffs and all readers of the classics.
