Alexander the Great by John Gunther


Alexander the Great by John Gunther

Some say he was the greatest warrior in history, building an empire that extended from Europe and Africa to India and Central Asia. Famed historian Gunther tells the story of Alexander the Great who, at only 21, became King of Macedonia and set off on a 12-year journey to conquer the known world and extend the boundaries of Greek civilization. Gunther describes his boyhood, his battles and victories, as well as the palace intrigues that surrounded him.
