WOW! I've waited over twenty-five years (hey, I'm only 51) since I first read about this; I'll have to post some of the archival stuff from my folder, "Cambyses' Lost Army". Meanwhile, Happy Belated Birthday, Herodotus, oh Father of History!

Of course, this has been announced before, and turned out to be incorrect, but I'm FIRED UP (in case no one could tell).

Looks like they outsmarted themselves. They took a secondary route between oases to the south to avoid fighting Egyptian garrisons on the main route that historians were looking on. The Persians dug and lined with clay pots wells along the way. (The aquifer was not so deep 2500 years ago.) But when they arrived at what they thought was the oasis of the temple of Amon, it turned out to be another oasis 60 miles to the south of the right one. While they were trying to figure it out, the sandstorm hit.
