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.

Alexander the Great February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
Wow, this is quite the tale of war!  Alexander the Great  was out to conquer the world and this book will walk you through his story.  This book is an exciting story or his conquests.  Though he lived though many battles, he was not able to win the battle of sickness, that cost him his life.  I think that this book gives a good example of some of the consequences of sin, as it depicts Alexander living his later years in fear and suspension of those around him.
