Publisher's Summary

"To be mystical and intensely practical, to dream greatly and to do greatly, is not," says Agnes Savill, "given to many men; it is this combination which gives Alexander his place apart in history. Aristotle had taught him that man's highest good lay in right activity of mind and body both. [Alexander] a strangely vivid impression of one whose body was his servant."He was trained by Aristotle in every branch of human learning, conquered much of Asia, and was one of the greatest leaders in the history of the world. He was unquestionably one of the most brilliant and commanding generals of all time. He greatly influenced the spread of Hellenism and is responsible for profound changes in the course of world development.Agnes Savill gives us a vivid account of the life, personality, failures, and accomplishments of one of history's largest characters.
