        [PDF] Discovering Cyrus: The Persian Conqueror Astride the Ancient World (Iran's Age of Empire).   In Discovering Cyrus: The Persian Conqueror Astride the Ancient World, Reza Zarghamee relates a shocking omission. “Ferdowsi does not mention Cyrus in the Shahnameh, and the Sasanids seemingly have no memory of him through local Persian traditions” ().

      The book divides into two parts, a set of six court tales in chapters 1–6 written mostly in Aramaic, followed by four apocalyptic visions in chapters 7–12, written mostly in Hebrew. The deuterocanon contains three additional stories: the Song of the Three Holy Children, Susanna, and Bel and the Dragon. Discovering Cyrus: The Persian Conqueror Astride the Ancient World: Zaghamee, Reza: Books - (20).

      This entire book is also available in Persian, as translated by Faruq Izadinia. The translation, cover sheet, and a brief "about" note have been zipped for easy downloading: Order of Conqueror Books. Conqueror is a series of historical fiction novels by English author Conn Iggulden. The series follows historical figure Genghis Khan, Emperor of the Mongol Empire. Although the series is based on actual history, Iggulden has taken some liberties, which he notes at the end of the book.
