Alexander the Greatest

A non fiction book by

Who was Alexander? Myth or man? God or devil? He claimed to be Zeus' son and even in his own lifetime, wild legends sprang up about him. Above all, Alexander was a hero - brave, wily, handsome and inspiring. This richly illustrated biography skilfully interweaves accounts of Alexander's battle campaigns with legends from each newly conquered country. From Greece and Egypt to Persia and India, the stories of the great mythical heroes of Achilles, Gilgamesh, and more, provide revealing echoes to Alexander's own charmed life.
