Awe-inspiring description of the most enviable conquest in history. Regrettably for the previous commending reviewer M. Wood wrote not only what he read about, but also what he saw and discovered during his trip. The traces of Hellenism and Greek culture from Asia minor to India and from the mountains of Afghanistan to the deserts of Egypt.
