Cambyses' Lost Army by Salima Ikram (p 18) is a short news item that pertains to a story in Herodotus. This story was doubted for most of the past 2,500 years, but after WWII traces of this lost Persian force were revealed by shifting sands: ...the Persians set forth from Oasis across the sand, and had reached about half way between that place and themselves when, as they were at their midday meal, a wind arose from the south, strong and deadly, bringing with it vast columns of whirling sand, which entirely covered up the troops and caused them wholly to disappear. Thus, according to the Ammonians, did it fare with this army. -- Book III.

Swallowed by the Sands by Michael A. Stowe
