Summary Ἀνάβασις

characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Xenophon Ἀνάβασις characters ó 7 Ver the army loses cause and direction and the result is a 'marching republic' in which the remainder of the army must fight their way home Through endless miles of hostile territory where their foes crop up at every turn Xenophon emerges as one of the few men capable of making decisions and leading the army through a variety of difficulties in a perilous retreat back t. A bit dry in parts perhaps but a necessary read for any student or aficionado of Greek history The story of Xenophon and his march with his fellow Greeks across the deserts and wilderness of places like modern day Ira and Turkey is a fascinating and timeless one I think my biggest takeaway in reading this book was just how alien the ancient world really is to us For all the ways we like to compare ourselves to the Ancient Greeks their ideals of freedom of thought democratic principles and philosophies the ancient world would be a completely foreign and crazy world to any modern person Take the amount of times the Greeks have to make a sacrifice to the gods for instance before a major or even minor decision If I had played a drinking game and taken a shot every time the Greeks sacrificed to the gods in this book I would have been dead by page 10

Ἀνάβασις

characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Xenophon Ἀνάβασις characters ó 7 Widely considered the most famous work of the professional soldier and writer Xenophon Anabasis is a true tale of dangerous adventure in ancient Greece Though advised not to join the army of 10000 by his friend Socrates Xenophon does set out with Cyrus the Great in that man's attempt to gain the empire of Persia from his brother When this leader is killed in battle howe. The book is an account of Prince Cyrus s attempt in 401 BCE to replace his brother Ataxerxes II on the Persian throne The narrative moves at a nice clip though at the expense of detail The Ten Thousand as the Greek mercenaries are known advance a thousand miles from Greek Sardis in Asia Minor to Babylon only to have Cyrus die in battle and leave them stranded I am not a big reader of military histories This subject interested me because I had liked Thucydides s History of the Peloponnesian War so much This account is not as good as that Thucydides sought something like journalistic objectivity in his account and he had a gift for detail Xenophon lacks any such narrative balance or descriptive acumen In fact much of the last half of the book might be regarded as auto hagiography if there is such a thing since Xenophon was or considered himself to be a major player in the action After Cyrus s death the Greeks have to fight their way back home along a much longer route Understandably very few native peoples are happy to let an army of this size pass unmolested through their lands especially when plunder is a necessary means of survival for the Greeks Xenophon proceeds by way of travelogue interrupted now and then by biographies of those significant persons usually generals who are killed in action Here you will find all the elements of a spirited adventure narrative heroism military battle treachery megalomania sacking of villages taking of prisoners sacrifices to the gods and so on Especially interesting too is the soothsaying by way of animal entrails Chapter 1 Book 6 of this translation features a fascinating account of the various dances done during a respite by the soldiers who represent all regions of Greece My favorite passage however comes late in the book when Xenophon has to control his unruly soldiers at Byzantium The way he assuages their anger and then talks them out of sacking the Spartan run city is a joy to read Highly recommended
