The Search for Alexander

Front Cover
Little, Brown, 1980 - History - 448 pages
Who was this remarkable man called Alexander? What drove him to daring feats of organization and discipline that would be impossible to believe were they not documented by solid archaeological and historical evidence? After centuries of enshrouding myth and conflicting legends -- of his death-defying prowess during battle, of his rumored participation in wild drinking parties -- what do we now know for certain about Alexander's life? This book sets out to answer these questions in what is a fascinating, highly readable biography, published to coincide with an exciting national television special and a major international art exhibition bringing hundreds of stunning royal relics from the Alexandrian age.
