Alexander the Great : The Death of a God

by Doherty, Paul

Condition: New/New


London, United Kingdom: Constable, 2004. What or Who Really Killed the Young Conqueror of the Known World? [Alternative title " The Death of Alexander the Great] May 323 BC Alexander of Macedon fell ill at Babylon. Ten days later, aged only 33, he was dead. In the previous decade this military genius from a small and unimpressive kingdom to the north west of Greece had raged like a wolf through the Persian empire, conquering the lands of the Middle East, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran, his armies penetrating into western Pakistan and the north-west frontier of India. In a compelling and readable account, Paul Doherty analyzes this enigmatic conqueror and examines the circumstances surrounding the young king's final hours. The traditional belief is that Alexander died of alcohol poisoning or was the victim of an acute bout of malaria. But were there other, more sinister factors involved? A master of vivid and exciting narrative and a skilled historical analyst, Doherty offers a thrilling new perspective on the mysterious death of one of the greatest heroes the world has ever seen. 236p. bibliography.index.. 1st UK Edition. Hard Cover. New/New.
