After reading the first book in the Alexander trilogy I found this a little harder going but once past the first 50 pages really got into it. This book looks at the lengths Alexander was prepared to go to in order to exoand his already vast empire but also shows us his extrordianarily compassionate side towards those he wanted to lead.
