Alexander's legacy has had a
major impact on military tacticians, scholars, statesmen, adventurers, authors,
and filmmakers. Cartledge brilliantly evokes Alexander's remarkable political
and military accomplishments, cutting through the myths to show why he was such
a great leader. He explores our endless fascination with Alexander and gives us
insight into his charismatic leadership, his capacity for brutality, and his
sophisticated grasp of international politics. Alexander the Great is
an engaging portrait of a fascinating man, and a welcome balance to the myths,
legends, and often skewed history that have obscured the real Alexander.
