Alexander the Great
Man, Myth or Monster?
Jamila Gavin
Illustrated by David Parkins
Price  699.00
A beautifully illustrated biography of Alexander the Great by a Whitbread Award-winner.

Who was Alexander? Myth or man? God or devil? He claimed to be Zeus' son and even in his own lifetime wild legends sprang up about him. Above all, Alexander was a hero – brave, wily, handsome and inspiring. This richly illustrated biography skilfully interweaves accounts of Alexander’s battle campaigns with legends from each newly conquered country. From Greece and Egypt to Persia and India, the stories of the great mythical heroes Achilles, Gilgamesh, and many others echo Alexander’s own charmed life
