One of the greatest true-life adventure stories ever recorded, this ancient classic—also known as The March of the Ten Thousand or The March Up Country—is now brought to life in a newly translated, definitive edition that features copious illuminating annotations, maps, and illustrations

Xenophon’s Anabasis is a fascinating tale of fraught and dangerous journey, and this translation shines new light on the long-revered text. The narrative tells of ten thousand Greek soldiers stranded deep in hostile Persia, their commander dead. Xenophon was appointed as one of their leaders, and he chronicled the 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 Shane Brennan and David Thomas—supplements the text with detailed maps 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.
