The epic life and death of Alexander the Great
More than two millennia have passed, but Alexander the Great is still a household name. His life was an adventure story and took him to every corner of the ancient world. His memory and glamor persist, and his early death at thirty-three has kept him evergreen in our imaginations.
In Alexander the Great, Anthony Everitt judges the conqueror’s life against the criteria of his time and considers all of his contradictions. Alexander exhibited respect for his subjects and careful judgment in administering rule over a vast territory. However, he also glorified war and was known to commit acts of great cruelty. Everitt also ventures to solve the puzzle of Alexander’s death, offering an ending to a story that has eluded so many for so long.
