Cawthorne does what all my history textbooks have failed to do, shining a light on the man behind the military strategy. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, anticipating another boring list of dates and battles with names I couldn’t pronounce, but I was engrossed from the very start, and forgot a few times that it was history because it felt so much like an exciting historical fiction novel! As entertaining as it was, it still managed to be very educational, and I came away with a better understanding of Ancient Greece than any uni class has ever given me.

A clear, concise summary of the tumultuous life of a great man. So many histories can be dry and clinical, but Cawthorne manages to give the drama of Ancient Greece the excitement it's due!

It's easy to see why so many people are fascinated by the life of Alexander the Great, continue to speculate about all the scandals within it.

This was definitely an enlightening read, and one I may have to go through again in order to be sure to get everything possible out of it!
