Book Description

1 Aug 2002 Alexander (Book 3)
All his life, Alexander defied the limits the gods gave mortals. That passion overwhelmed cities and armies . . . and united a vast empire. Alexander was no longer simply King of Macedonia: The Pan-Hellenic League had named him Supreme Leader. Egypt crowned him Pharaoh. And all Persia acknowledged him as Great King. He was a true heir to Achilles and Hercules, a leader who had guided troops to victory beyond the Nile, the Tigris, and the Euphrates. Now, conquering India would place all of Asia in his hands. But his army reached the limit of its endurance, and the cost of triumph had been high - in blood, betrayal, and tragedy. Alexander lost Barsine, his first beloved; Bucephalus, a steed unequaled; Peritas, his loyal hound; and Hephaestion, the closest companion of his youth. Still he sought the wisdom and might to transform the empire he had claimed into the one of which he dreamed, no longer divided into victors and vanquished, but a unified people under his rule. For Alexander was destined for timeless glory in the domain of heroes and gods - both in his lifetime and in the realm of eternal legend.

Format:Paperback
This is a very ambitious series. The scale of coverage is vast, and a lot must follow the adventures of Alexander and narration in the sources. Its very ably written. The militiary aspects are well covered. Negatively, a little too rational and human an Alexander. In that sense, the author does try to deal with Alexander's darker side but could he ever succeed? What of the alcoholism and homosexuality. Still a ripping yarn, and one which will have you staying the course through the 3 volumes. Nobody has turned this material into a novel format with such rigour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexander: The Ends of the Earth 24 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
The product arrived swiftly and on time. This was a fantastic read, fast-paced and action filled whilst also focusing on Alexander as a person. I would recommend this series to anyone, not just people with a particular interest in Alexander the Great or classical warfare.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing 29 April 2009
Format:Paperback
THis is an excellent book. One of the best I've read. Unfortunately the rest of the authors books do not match up to the greatness of this trilogy, with the possible exception of the lost legion.
