Writer: Lewis Helfand
Now their leaders are dead and their army has scattered. Now their numbers have fallen to ten thousand men and nothing remains but fear. Now they are men praying not for victory, but for the slim chance of living one more day.
Cut off by impassible terrain and pursued by an army of one million enemy soldiers; they must stand together to survive. To find their way home, one of their own must lead them. And to live one more day…
You won’t find underdogs defeating massive empires in the pages of 400 B.C. but what you will find is a realistic portrayal of what human interactions are like regardless of the time period in which they are set in.
Singh’s pencils bring Persia to life in the pages of the book and paint a land filled with blood, sweat and men who refuse to embrace death – the easier of the two routes to pick from.
If ancient stories of Persian wars and Greek tragedies are what you seek, you will find it here.
