About the Book:

Possibly the most famous commander in history, Alexander the Great never ceases to fascinate. Only 20 years old when he became king of Macedon, he had already begun to display the military genius that would win him a series of victories against the mighty Persian Empire.

In an epic II-year campaign, he travelled thousands of miles through deserts, plains and forests, fought huge battles, and besieged numerous cities to become the master of a massive empire stretching from Greece to India. He died prematurely at the age of 32, and no man could hold together the empire he had created. A god in his lifetime, his name is still world-famous millennia after his death.

This book examines Alexander’s campaigns in detail. His victories and the tactics that ensured them are explained and described with the help of maps, illustrations and reconstructions, bringing the epic career of one of the world’s greatest generals to life.
