Fire from Heaven (Alexander the Great, #1) Description

Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty three, leaving behind an empire that stretched from Greece and Egypt to India and a new cosmopolitan model for western civilisation In Alexander s childhood, his defiant character was molded into the makings of a king His mother, Olympias, and his father, King Philip of Macedon, fought each other for their son s loyalty, teaching Alexander politics and vengeance from the cradle His love for the youth Hephaistion, on whom he depended for he rest of his life, taught him trust, whilst Aristotle s tutoring provoked his mind and Homer s Iliad fuelled his aspirations He killed his first man in battle at the age of twelve and became the commander of Macedon s cavalry at eighteen by the time his father was murdered and he acceded to the throne, Alexander s skills had grown to match his fiery ambition..
