The ultimate historical adventure novel: the life of Alexander the Great in a single, epic volume
To many he was a god. To others he was a monster. The truth is even more extraordinary. As a boy, Alexander dreamed of matching the heroic feats of Achilles. At 18 he led the Macedonian cavalry to a stunning victory against the Greeks. By 25 he had crushed the Persians in three monumental battles and was the master of the greatest empire the world had ever seen. Men began to call him a god. But behind the legend was another, more complex story. Narrated by his boyhood friend Ptolemy, this is the story of Alexander as you have never heard it before: raw, intimate, and thrilling—a story of extraordinary daring and unimaginable endurance; of wanton destruction and murderous intrigue—the epic tragedy of a man who aimed to be more than human. Includes a glossary.
