9781331594932: Xenophon Cyropaedia, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Xenophon Cyropaedia, Vol. 1 of 2

Xenophon, the son of a knightly family of Athens - general, historian, philosopher, essayist - was born probably about 429 B.C. But there is a story, not very well authenticated, that his life was saved by Socrates in the battle of Delium (424 B.C), and that this marked the beginning of his attachment to his great master. If this story be true, the date of his birth can hardly be placed later than 444 B.C.

Our chief interest in his career centres about his participation in the Expedition of the Younger Cyrus (401 B.C.); the Anabasis, his own account of that brilliant failure, gives him his chief claim to a high place among the great names in historical literature; and his successful conduct of the Retreat of the Ten Thousand gives him his high rank among the worlds great generals and tacticians.
