ALEXANDER THE GREAT, Philip Mitchell Freeman.

A lively biography of the man who changed the world in the first great meeting between East and West. Educated by Aristotle, Alexander the Great was a brilliant general whose campaign of conquest against the Persian Empire took him from Homer’s Troy and the deserts of Egypt to the mountains of central Asian and the jungles of India. His introduction of Greek culture throughout the lands he conquered had profound effects on the ancient and modern world. (Simon & Schuster, 2009)
