A great epic, who needs SciFi and Fantasy?,
This review is from: The Persian Expedition (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
I keep encouraging younger readers to embrace the classics and the Anabasis or Persian expedition is the first recommendation, that I make. An epic yarn that has crossed the ages to the most unlikely places (Consider that Xenophon's Persian Expedition was the inspiration for the 1970s film "The Warriors").
Who needs Sci-Fi and Fantasy when real history produces such heroic epics.
Inspiring but more importantly accessible ...which begs the question why more don't access it.
