The exploits of Cyrus the Great's Greek army are brought to life in this thrilling retelling of Xenophon's Anabasis for children.
Geoffrey Household retells Xenophon's time-enduring story of the Greek army that supported Cyrus the Great in his attempt on the Persian throne.
Told for the first time for children, this is one of the world's great stories of courage and endurance.
Geoffrey Household was a prolific novelist of political thrillers and suspense stories, most notably the classic ROGUE MALE, which, THE TIMES recently declared, 'remains as exciting and probing as ever'. He was as widely travelled as the settings of his books suggest: after graduating from Magdalen College, Oxford, with a first in English literature he worked abroad for twenty-five years, and served in British Intelligence during World War Two in Greece and the Middle East. He married twice and eventually settled in the English countryside with his wife and three children.
