Product Description

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.
