Balanced historian's view of Alexander
Alexander, king of Macedon, is one of history's great personalities best known for military achievemnets. Movies and popular fiction have shaded truth so that the real Alexander is a mystery. Cartledge rectifies this through the sleuthing of a historian. What emerges is a charismatic, decisive, innovative, ruthless leader who was dead at 33. This is a balanced look at the many facets of Alexander's life, and written in a readable style.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
