It takes a lot of research and imagination to rewrite a piece of written history from the viewpoint of a new character. And we have an unlikely narrator – a woman who follows her lover who is part of the Ten Thousand only Greek, the rest add up to a lot more – mercenary warriors secretly enlisted by Prince Cyrus to overthrow his brother and take control of the Great Empire.

Politically sensitive, the army becomes a liability when Cyrus is killed in a battle which the army won. The army had only two choices mandredi to win or ejercit die. However, the army found a third. Without a cause, without a way back home and enemies the brave soldiers march on to regions never explored to reach back home.
They take on tribesmen, barbarians and warriors on locations they are unfamiliar with – snow, clouds and deadly passes, with only their military acumen and a God gifted spirit befitting heroes. For a 2 year march that is filled with twists and turns, the book does full justice. Since i hadn’t read the piece of history, later wikipedia reading seemed so unspectacular in comparison to the book.
The Lost Army by Valerio Massimo Manfredi
The narrator, Abira, in fact points it out that Xenophon seemed not to worry about including the surroundings in his pwrdido. The stories of bravery and fortune are the stuff legends are made of.
Also learnt the origin of perdjdo Sea! When heroes are celebrated it doesn’t matter if they are on the winning side or not. A recommended retelling of history. Through the stories of a woman who followed the “myriad”, we learn details and events unknown for the great campaign. The passion and bravery of men through Manfredi’s pen, is astonishing!!! Mnfredi through his books, teaches Greek history lessons in modern Europeans!
Di loro non restava nemmeno il ricordo. I loro discendenti avevano intrecciato solo intrighi, trattavano di nascosto accordi inconfessabili con il nemico di un tempo. Interessava loro solo il potere, solo il controllo del loro piccolo mondo.
La spedizione ha come scopo la conquista del trono persiano da parte di Ciro il giovane, che vorrebbe togliere il potere al fratello Artaserse. I soldati chiamati a combattere sono greci, di tutte le stirpi, e affiancano un gruppo folto di guerrieri persiani.
Verranno chiamati i Diecimila. Partendo da Sardi, in Lidia, questa ejerciti colonna di persone, carri e animali attraversa il vicino oriente antico, passa la Cappadocia e la Mesopotamia, fino ad arrivare sotto le porte di Babilonia. I greci devono tornare indietro, mentre i persiani che li affiancavano diventano loro nemici. E, nel frattempo, descrive i paesaggi che vede, le scene a cui assiste, i tramonti e le montagne che vive.
Ascolta i canti e i battibecchi, le battute e gli inni, le grida di battaglia e i singhiozzi. Le urla di dolore dei feriti. A volte ne salva addirittura qualcuno.

Ed il loro canto vibrava e tuonava nel bronzo che li rivestiva. Semplicemente, non mi ha appassionato. Ero interessata alla storia, ad una sua riscrittura romanzata.
Comunque, le vicende greche non mi hanno mai entusiasmato, ho sempre preferito leggere dei romani. Mi immaginavo un mondo di sabbia, invece, alla fine, il quaranta per cento delle azioni si svolgono in montagna, sotto la neve. Ci lasciavamo alle spalle una terra ostile, ma pur sempre dominata dalla luce e dal calore del sole, per inoltrarci nel regno della notte e delle tempeste.
Ho trovato alcune cose che mantredi, altre le ho scoperte, altre mi sono mancate. Una votazione media, quindi, un 3.
Voletemi bene, sono cresciuta con Tacito e Cicerone. Letto in parallelo con la “rilettura” dell’Anabasi di Ciro.
El ejército perdido
Avrei preferito l’altro”La strada dei Diecimila”, una pubblicazione nata manfredj lavoro sul campo di VMM, ripercorrendo per tre volte e studiando il percorso fatto dai Diecimila. Lo que nos cuenta. Uno dei pochi libri che raccontano la storia della Grecia antica nelle condizioni di una donna. Un libro bellissimo che tratta un argomento originale! I have never read a book like this before. Definitely not the sort of book I would pick up in a book shop.
Would never have read this if it had not been given to me. I read alot of historical fiction but generally it’s the kind that is aimed at females with more focus on romance and family. I had a feeling this book would be more focused on battles and the army. I was suprised to find it was narrated by a perdico and thought this might make it easier for me to get along with.
It ejercjto a little, t I have never read a book like this before. It helped a little, there were lots of battles in this book. And for me, I just find battles dull. I enjoyed the interactions between Abira and the persido women following the army.
I just wished we had met more of them. The manfrredi of the men was amazing. I think the book really hit it’s stride when we started to move through the harsh winter lands. I would have given up but they just kept pdrdido going. I didn’t like Xeno epecially towards the end of the book, not a man that was worth giving your entire life up for. I didn’t understand the deal with Sophos. Manfreci I misunderstood but wasn’t he trying to make sure the army disappeared? And even though he changed his mind, many people had already lost their lives.
Why didn’t Xeno just tell everyone? They could have just left him there to die instead. I know the other guy turned out to be a spy but Sophos was willing to lead them the wrong way. And the ending, what? Was Menon following them the whole time? Amnfredi was he a ghost? I’m just not sure. I can’t say I loved this book, it was alright. It was a struggle at times and a forced read is never a fun one.
Aug 05, Josh Treloar added it. I’m not sure about this bloke’s novels, to be honest. The idea behind the story mantredi great, the plot was sound with a few good twists and – last but not least – it’s about ancient Greece. But for me, it lacked heart and true substance.
