This is the first comprehensive commentary on a section of Xenophon's Anabasis in English for almost a century. It provides up-to-date guidance on literary, historical and cultural aspects of the Anabasis and will help undergraduate students to read Greek better. It also incorporates recent advances in Xenophontic scholarship and Greek linguistics, showcasing in particular Xenophon's linguistic innovations and varied style. Advanced students and professional scholars will also profit from the sustained attention which this commentary devotes to Xenophon's varied narrative strategies and to the reception of episodes from Anabasis III in antiquity. The introduction and commentary show that Xenophon is just as important (if not more so) to the development of Greek historiography, and of Greek prose in general, as Herodotus and Thucydides.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The commentary of course covers much more than the language. Introductions are provided for individual sections and explain details of the march at each stage. Information is not gratuitously presented, so we are not treated to a full-scale discussion of Assyrians despite the army passing through their former territory. In short, the commentary and introduction are very helpful and informative, lucidly expressed and clearly presented. One of [the authors'] aims is to 'help students to read Greek better' and in this they surely succeed.' Alan Beale, Classics for All
