Product description

Famously tutored by Aristotle, Alexander ruthlessly established himself as Macedonian king in the 300s BC, setting about continuing his father’s wars against the Persian Empire (for their attacks on Greek City states 150 years before.) Astride his horse Bucephalus, he embarked on his great eastern campaigns in which he conquered most of the known world, as far as India, taking Greek language and culture with him. He never returned, dying of a fever in Babylon at the age of 32.

An incredible story of a brilliant military tactician who is bent on taking over the world. Taking part in battles and sieges galore, Alex even finds himself up against an army of 326 elephants…
