Summary
From the age of 20 until his early death at age 32, Alexander the Great and his armies sailed from Greece and swept across a vast region that included Persia, Asia Minor, Syria, and Egypt. He traveled thousands of miles with his troops and ultimately ruled an empire that stretched approximately two million square miles over three continents. He revolutionized the way war was waged and extended the influence of classical Greek culture far beyond the borders of Greece and his native Macedonia. Seldom does one man exert so much influence on world history. Empire of Alexander the Great looks at what made Alexander a brilliant military tactician and a charismatic leader. It also explores what the Eastern world learned through contact with Alexander, and what Alexander brought the West from the Persian Empire. Connections in our own world to Alexander's empire include the legend of the Gordion Knot, pearls, the Egyptian metropolis of Alexandria, and the Septuagint (the first translation of the Torah from Hebrew)
