Alexander the Great
A Young Man's Quest to Rule the World
Alexander the Great built an empire that extended from Europe to Africa and on to the Himalayas.
Famed historian John Gunther tells the story of this famous adventurer who, at the age of twenty-one, becomes King of Macedonia and sets off on a twelve-year adventure to conquer the known world and to extend the boundaries of Greek civilization.
From the time he cleverly tamed a dangerous warhorse as a young boy, people recognized his potential. Go with this young king and his army of cavalry, archers, and foot soldiers across seas, mountains, and deserts and into fierce battles against huge armies. Witness Alexander's remarkable talent for strategy and leadership, as well as the many palace intrigues that surrounded him. While his life was cut short at a young age, Alexander's achievements changed the course of history forever.

Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history.

Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
John Gunther is best known as the author of Death Be Not Proud, which remains a core title in high school English classes, and which also became a successful film.
