Hi folks,

For those with any interest in history and warfare and thrilling events, and a wish to fill your earphones with it, I can recommend Xenophon's Anabasis (meaning march inland from the coast), recording the march of 10 000 Greek mercenaries in support of Persian pretender Cyrus, to and from foreign lands, and their varied travails, battles and internal strife. The Anabasis will take you back to a world of Persian world empire, unruly highland tribes and blooming Greek coastal colonization. It will let you glimpse a past time when enslavement and pillage were commonplace, and where might makes right. It will especially take you close to a fight for survival, and vicious backstabbing. This is a Librivox recording of a 19th century English translation, read by various volunteers. It's well worth reading in text, too!

Such an epic venture and fascinating when you consider the earlier Persian invasion of Greece and Alexander’s wars.
