Inspired in his leadership, fearless in battle, and boundless in his ambition, Alexander the Great inherited his father's empire at the age of twenty and resolved to expand it. He ruthlessly suppressed all who dared to rebel and led violent and bloody campaigns through Persia, Egypt, India, and Babylon, destroying others in his path and establishing new cities to glorify his name. By the time of his death at thirty-two, his empire encompassed two million square miles-most of the known world. His achievement was, and remains, unparalleled. He was worshiped as a god during his lifetime, and his legend has only grown since.

Abbott's account of Alexander's life reads like a Greek tragedy. We are reminded of Jesus' admonition, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mt. 16:26a). Alexander gained the world, but at what cost?

Alexander the Great is part of Makers of History, a 19th century biography series by two brothers, Jacob and John S.C. Abbott. Reprinted by Canon Press, these biographies have been edited and brought up-to-date for readers twelve and up. Not only are these editions given vintage style paperback covers, but they also include introductions that explain where these men and women fit into the timeline of history.
