The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the epic march of the Ten Thousand, an army recruited at the end of the fifth century BC by a young Persian prince, Cyrus, who rose in revolt agains his brother, the King of Persia. After Cyrus death, the army is left stranded in the desert of Mespotamia, a thousand miles from home. Their long march, across mountains and plateaus to the sight of ""The sea! The sea!,"" and back to the fringes of the Greek world, is the most excititng adventure story to survive from the ancient world. This new translation of Xenophons most famous work offers a gripping narrative and a unique insight into the character of a Greek army struggling to survive in an alien world.
