Book summary

From the back cover: "In The Persian Expedition, Xenophon, a young Athenian noble who sought his destiny abroad, provides an enthralling eyewitness account of the attempt by a Greek mercenary army--The Ten Thousand--to help Prince Cyrus overthrow his brother and take the Persian throne.....Xenophon, one of those chosen to lead the retreating army, provides a vivid narrative of the campaign and its aftermath, and his account remains one of the best pictures we have of Greeks confronting a 'barbarian' world....Rex Warner's distinguished translation captures the epic quality of the Greek original."
