CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Tough, resolute, fearless, Alexander was a born warrior and ruler of
passionate ambition who understood the intense adventure of conquest and of the
unknown. When he died in 323 BC aged thirty-two, his vast empire comprised more
than two million square miles, spanning from Greece to India. His achievements
were unparalleled - he had excelled as leader to his men, founded eighteen new
cities and stamped the face of Greek culture on the ancient East. The myth he
created is as potent today as it was in the ancient world. Robin Lane Fox's
superb account searches through the mass of conflicting evidence and legend to
focus on Alexander as a man of his own time. Combining historical scholarship
and acute psychological insight, it brings this colossal figure vividly to life.
