REVIEW Ἀνάβασις

READ & DOWNLOAD Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ß Xenophon Xenophon ß 0 SUMMARY SUMMARY È Ἀνάβασις 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 Persian Expedition or The Anabasis or The March Up Country tells the story of an army of Greek mercenaries who ended up fighting for the losing side of a Persian civil war and must travel through hostile territory to return home And this isn t a metter of just dialing up 10000 Uber rides besides the surge fee would be enormous they have to march through hundreds of miles of hostile territory with both natives and the Persian army seeking to block their way They are completely on their own with no help on the way It is at the very least a compelling story and has the benefit of actually happeningThis was certainly an interesting reading experience The writing style was definitely not of the modern world A good chunk of it was devoted to explaining the movements of the Greek forces through hostile territory As in They marched X leagues to this new area and chilled for a bit then marched another Y leagues to a new area There was much food and supplies to be acuired There were also some extended paragraphs of people not characters mind you all these people actually existed giving speeches there was little to no dialogue and everything was stated in a very matter of fact manner While similar to other period books I read in terms of the structure however I thought the prose didn t reach the same elevated level History of the Peloponnesian War reachedOne must keep in mind that this account comes to us from Xenophon a Greek and eventual leader of the expedition So we run the risk of leaning on this account too much since the source is rather biased Xenophon comes off as a perfectly selfless and noble leader among men almost too perfect Everyone who opposes him is often shown as conniving and devious Clearly salt should be taken when reading this accountIt is also important to remember the people on the other side of the story Here is this 10000 man strong mercenary force traveling through a hostile land and basically living off of it and any stored supplies they can capture They are basically heavily armed locusts with a lot of military experience and no compunction against harming barbarian people I imagine the story from their victims gives a very different accountAll in all this was an interesting read in so far as it gives a contemporary account of Greek culture and world view for instance the Greeks love sacrificing stuff to figure out the best course of action there are even professional seers that travel with the army to interpret the results of the sacrifice IT was like every other page it was time for another sacrifice It was also a good illustration of just how decentralized everything was compared to modern nation states Greek cities basically did their own thing even if they were bound loosely by a common culture The Persian Empire was a collection of kingdoms held in line by the central Persian authority s ability to punish or reward them much different from even the Roman Empire The past truly is a foreign country in many respectsSo while I wouldn t recommend this book in terms a pure entertainment it was an illuminating look into the time and is worthwhile on that account

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
