the ferocity, heroism, and savage bloodshed of the ancient
Conn Iggulden, the New York Times bestselling
author of the Emperor, Conqueror, and Wars of the Roses
series, returns to the ancient world with a ferociously
401 BC. In the ancient world, one army was feared above all
others. The Persian king Artaxerxes rules an empire
stretching from the Aegean to northern India. As many as
fifty million people are his subjects. His rule is absolute.
Though the sons of Sparta are eager to play the game of
thrones . . .
Yet battles can be won—or lost—with a single blow. Princes
fall. And when the dust of civil war settles, the Spartans
are left stranded in the heart of an enemy’s empire, without
support, without food, and without water.
Far from home, surrounded by foes, it falls to the young
soldier Xenophon to lead the survivors against Artaxerxes’s
legendary Persian warriors.
