Dr. Peter Greene has written an astounding biography of the Macedonian conquerer. Alexander was envied by Julius Caesar, wondered at by Napoleon: Dr. Greene gives us reasons. Alexander's life was complicated by his bisexuality and his desire to wage war for the sake of waging war. Only a man doing the research that Greene has could paint such a clear picture of a subject lost in the myst of over 2500 years of history. A remarkable read for anyone interested in the saga of humankind.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is an excellent biography of Alexander and not only shows his tactical genius but also his luck in battle. No topic is left unexplored and after reading this book, you almost feel as if you were there marching alongside Alexander as he travelled as far east as India and Afganistan.Was this review helpful?
