The Ten Thousand

The Ten Thousand

In a novel of high adventure and riveting historical drama, Michael Curtis Ford brings to life an amazing true story from Ancient Greece – Xenophon’s march of The Ten Thousand. A tale of war and peace, of loyalties and betrayals, and of a soldier’s love for a mysterious and dangerous woman, The Ten Thousand captures the eternal spirit of courage in the face of impossible odds.

Winter, 401 BC.
A thundering army of mercenaries, camp followers, dreamers, and glory seekers set off to help a rebellious foreign general named Cyrus. In the months that followed, ten thousand men – trained and hardened in three decades of war in Greece – would engage in pitched battles, witness untold horrors, and begin a desperate march across he desert, over raging rivers, and into the jaws of hell itself.

By the time it was over, some would be alive, others dead, and one among them would emerge and the greatest hero of all . . .

Perfect for fans of Simon Scarrow, Ben Kane, Conn Iggulden, Harry Sidebottom and S.J.A. Turney.
