Freshly released and free from May 26 thru May 28th. It is a page turner that looks at the life and battles of one of the greatest conquerors in history. Scathing family feuds, boyhood growing pains, deceitful intrigue, bloody battles, the zeal for winning against all odds, sharp strategy, and powerful rituals are just some of the themes one finds in the life of the greatest tactician and warrior that ever lived.
Alexander the Great – born into a family steeped in myth and power, descending from Hercules and Achilles, conquered the known world with a just handful of men.
When you take the glamour and glory away, then what you have inside Alexander is a young boy who is trying to launch from his father’s shoulders. Privilege aside, Alexander shows tremendous grace and foresight in most of his encounters with friend and foe, alike.
His birth was speculated by oracles and was the harbinger of greatness to the Macedonian pedigree, and eventually to Greece, at large. However, as we immerse ourselves in the story of this man’s life, we see that if it wasn’t for Philip, the single most powerful force in Alexander’s life, all this might not be in our history.
There is a lot of speculation as to Alexander’s real motivation to cross into Asia. Some suggest it was to avenge his father’s assassination; others think it was to prove himself and step away from his father’s shadow, or perhaps it was to prove that he was better than Philip. You decide.
Whatever the wind in his sails, whatever he believed, his accomplishments are undeniable, his glory, irreproachable.
Come, read; there are still many mysteries that are unanswered, like whether he had a hand in his father’s assassination or the location of his final resting place. All those are touched upon in this book. Find the clues and get to know the steel it takes to go up against the mightiest military in the world … and win.
