By the time Alexander was 30 he had conquered, or was ruler of, the whole of Asia Minor, Greece, the Middle East, Cyprus, Egypt, Persia, Syria, Afghanistan and Northern India as far as the Ganges. If his men had only agreed to cross the Ganges, who knows where his armies might have finished. In this stunning, illustrated reference book, Nick McCarty tells the story of this remarkable man with enthusiasm and passion. It is fascinating, hugely exciting and, moreover, it's true. With at least one major Hollywood blockbuster confirmed, directed by the man who brought us Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet, this is the ultimate companion to the life and times of the greatest of men.
