In 334 BC the twenty-two-year-old King Alexander of Macedon led his army across the Bosphorus to challenge the mighty Persian empire. Ten years later his conquests had taken him to the edge of the known world. But, as Asia Minor, Egypt and parts of India lay at his feet, Alexander was dying, his huge empire soon to be split up. Alexander the Great celebrates his legendary life and his legacy to civilisation in a host of illustrations woven into the fascinating story, written by a renowned specialist in the history of the period.
