Description

Alexander the Great was one of the most brilliant and charismatic heroes of the ancient world. He likened himself to Achilles, the legendary warrior of Homeric tradition, and he loved to quote passages from The Iliad. He was also very curious and took laborious notes on flaura and fauna as he traveled from Greece across Asia and parts of Africa on his military campaigns.

This biography includes exploration of factors impacting Greece, Anatolia, Sumer, Babylonia, Phoenicia, Egypt, Persia and India during the 4th Century BC.
