Classicist and historian Philip Freeman recounts Alexander the Great's extraordinary life in the first reputable biography of the great conqueror to be produced for a wide readership in a generation. One of history's most enduring figures has been the renowned Macedonian ruler. He was a general of such fame and talent that for two thousand years other great leaders, including Hannibal, Napoleon, and countless others in between, studied his strategy and tactics. He appeared like a comet in the sky of history, gliding across it briefly before fading away: crowned at the age of nineteen, he passed away at the age of thirty-two. Greek coinage and statues can be discovered as far east as Afghanistan; he founded the biggest empire of antiquity. Our fascination with him has never subsided.
