'There is nothing impossible to him who will try...' He ascended to the throne of Macedon at the age of nineteen. He conquered the seemingly invincible Persian Empire before he was twenty-five. He died at the age of thirty-two, undefeated by any enemy. His reputation as a warrior and leader of men remains unsurpassed in the annals of history. We remember him as Alexander the Great...Epic in scope and magisterial in tone, Steve Pressfield's breathtaking novel tells the story of this legendary colossus of the ancient world who was driven - and ultimately undone - by his insatiable lust for glory. As immediate and gripping as bulletins from the frontline, and as intimate and revealing as a private diary, "Alexander: The Virtues of War" is destined to become a classic of historical fiction.
