From the Danube River to the Arabian Sea, from the western deserts of Egypt across what is now modern Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and on into India—in 12 short years during the fourth century B.C.—Alexander the Great conquered lands and amassed an empire unparalleled in history. Reading with British ease and assurance, narrator John Lee examines how Alexander used a love of hunting and horses to develop cavalry, siege, and battle strategies that forever changed the course of warfare and civilization. A fascinating final chapter lists the endeavors of subsequent conquerors and kings who emulated Alexander. For this chapter Lee’s tone—which projects a kind of verbal wink—acknowledges that Alexander’s accomplishments were a near-impossible act to follow.
