Tough, resolute, fearless, a born warrior, lover of Homer, drama and hunting, Alexander was also an impatient man of passionate ambitions, who understood the intense adventure of the unknown. When he died at thiry-two, his empire--from Greece to India--comprised two million square miles, and the vacuum he left was never properly filled. He had excelled as a general, he had stamped the face of Greek culture on the ancient East and he had created a myth that is as potent today as it was then.
