The extent of our web site is expanding so much, with so many different topics, we believe this shortcut index will be of use to our readers. You can download the htm file and install it with your own browser. Then you can use it for direct access to the parts of the Xenophon web empire that you want to view. When we add further pages to the various sections, we will also put a new link here so you can easily update your file. Please let us know if this assists you. We have hundreds of visitors but frankly not as much email as we would like. We have the resources to add material about a wide variety of military historical topics and would be happy to hear from readers about their interests.
