One of the foundational works of military history and political philosophy, and an inspiration for Alexander the Great, The Anabasis of Cyrus recounts the epic story of the Ten Thousand, a band of Greek mercenaries hired by Cyrus the Younger to overthrow his brother, Artaxerxes, king of Persia and the most powerful man on earth. It shows how Cyrus' army was assembled covertly and led from the coast of Asia Minor all the way to Babylon; how the Greeks held the field against a superior Persian force; how Cyrus was killed, leaving the Greeks stranded deep within enemy territory; and how many of them overcame countless dangers and found their way back to Greece. Their remarkable success was due especially to the wily and decisive leadership of Xenophon himself, a student of Socrates who had joined the Ten Thousand and, after most of the Greek generals had been murdered, rallied the despondent Greeks, won a position of leadership, and guided them wisely through myriad obstacles. In this new translation of the Anabasis of Cyrus, Wayne Ambler achieves a masterful combination of liveliness and a fidelity to the original uncommon in other versions. Accompanying Ambler's translation is a penetrating interpretive essay by Eric Buzzetti, one that shows Xenophon to be an author who wove a philosophic narrative into his dramatic tale. The translation and interpretive essay encourage renewed study of the Anabasis of Cyrus as a work of political philosophy. They also celebrate its high adventure and its hero's adroit decision-making under the most pressing circumstances.… (mere)

I tried getting into this, and I just could not. It sounded interesting when I picked it up at my library: the story of a group of Greek mercenaries fighting for Cyrus as he tries to depose his king. Cyrus loses, and the Greeks are stranded in enemy territory. I think it could even make a decent movie these days. However, there is a lot of "they marched here for X miles" followed by "then they went here and there." Compared to works like Herodotus and Thucydides, which I have read, this was not as compelling. I am not sure I get why so many people here seem to mark it so high. Then again, it may have been a case of the book did not suit my mood. ( )

Is Xenophon a good writer? I think not. This translation in particular is a little dry. However, "Anabasis" itself is unintentionally hilarious. ( )
  seshenibi | May 3, 2020 |
It's my considered opinion as a Hellenist that Xenophon is boring, narrow-minded, a bad writer, and overly focused on minutiae. He's the worst. Cry αιαι! O women, for the loss of Potential. ( )

(Introduction by G. L. Cawkwell): Every schoolboy used to know how ten thousand Greeks found themselves in the heart of the Persian empire a thousand miles from Greece, with half their leaders arrested by the Persians, and with a Persian army at hand, and how Xenophon the Athenian took charge and brought them safely home over rivers and mountains, through terrible winter and equally terrible barbarian foes, and it was a dull schoolboy indeed who did not thril at the sound heard one day by Xenophon from the rear of the column as he labored up yet another mountain against, as he thought, another hostile tribe -- 'The sea, the sea.'
