    Even before his sudden death at the age of 32, Alexander III of Macedonia had achieved mythical status throughout an empire that stretched from the eastern Mediterranean coast, through Asia Minor and into the Indus Valley. In this account of Alexander's fabled life, Hammond makes a careful analysis of ancient sources (Diodorus, Justin, Curtius, Plutarch and Arrian) and separates the work of reliable contemporaries from fictional reports to provide a narrative that pronounces the Macedonian conqueror truly 'Great'.
