This book is the last of a triology about probably the greatest warrior and general who has ever lived, bearing in mind that Alexander died at an age when most men are only just starting to make their mark in life. Alexander is of course one of histories most colourful and well know character. Even people with little or not interest in ancient history will have heard of Alexander, a charismatic and larger than life figure.
The final chapter in the life of Alexander sees his military might making their way into the heart of Asia and ever onwards towards the Indian sub continent. The Macedonian army is the mightiest force that has ever been seen and sweeps all before it. Virtually nobody and nothing can put any resistance in the way of its unrelenting advance.
Alexander is not just a destroyer, he has a fine brain and has an ambitious project to unite the people of the empire. This project becomes an obsession with him and he can think of nothing else, until he meets the beauty of Queen Roxanna and this gives him the strength he needs to begin to fulfil his destiny . . .
The author has produced a trilogy of books that will be read for years to come.
