Book Description:
In three decades of life, Alexander the Great conquered and ruled over an empire that stretched from Greece to India. His exploits as a leader are legendary, especially in light of his extremely brief existence. As the son of Philip of Macedon, Alexander studied under the great Aristotle, laying the foundations for future success. Upon ascending to the throne of Macedon at the age of 19, Alexander embarked on his conquests, starting by defeating Darius of Persia. After his victory over the Persians, he pressed on and pushed his army to the point of exhaustion as they stormed across Asia. In fact, the only reason Alexander halted his march was because the soldiers refused to go on any longer. His ambition was unmatched in the ranks of his forces. Among his lasting accomplishments are the cities he established, most notably Alexandria in Egypt, which became a leading repository of knowledge and literature.
This book presents a riveting account of Alexander’s stirring life, based on excerpts from Jacob Abbott’s comprehensive 1876 biography. The overview is augmented by a substantial and selective bibliography, featuring access through author, title, and subject indexes.
