9780571223831: Xenophon's Retreat: Greece, Persia and the End of the Golden Age

It is 401 BC. After an epic battle in Persia, Xenophon is elected general of the defeated Greek army and must lead the men on a fraught journey back home - a journey of hundreds of miles, north from modern-day Iraq into the mountains of Kurdistan and Armenia, and down to the coast of the Black Sea, fighting all the way, harried on all sides by Persian forces, wild mountain tribesmen, and a bitter winter...This book presents a gripping adventure full of drama, human interest, strong characters, pathos and triumph.

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Main. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. It is 401 BC. In battle at Cunaxa on the River Euphrates, the Persian king Artaxerxes II defeats a challenge to his throne by his brother Cyrus, the Younger. Among the slain of Cyrus s troops are a contingent of Greek mercenaries, known as The Ten Thousand. In the wake of the defeat, Xenophon, a former pupil of Socrates, is elected a general and must lead the men on a fraught journey back to Greece - a journey of hundreds of miles, north from modern-day Iraq into the mountains of Kurdistan and Armenia, and down to the coast of the Black Sea, fighting all the way, harried on all sides by Persian forces, wild mountain tribesmen, and a bitter winter.In Robin Waterfield s telling, this epic journey - which climaxed with a soon-to-be-legendary cry, The sea, the sea! - is a gripping adventure full of drama, human interest, strong characters, pathos, and triumph. More than that, the events so described occur on the cusp of change from the age of democracy to that of empire. For the tale begins with Aristotle and the school of Athens but ends with the invasion of Greece by Philip of Macedon and his son, Alexander the Great. Xenophon s Retreat symbolises that of the Greek world, and tells us something more of the West s ceaseless preoccupation with the gulf between Europe and the Middle East.
