You are a soldier in Alexander the Great’s army – ruler of one of the largest empires in the ancient world. The book charts with historical depth and accuracy, the battles, conquests and wars of Alexander the Great, from the start of his campaign in Asia Minor to his death in Babylon in 323 BC.

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach placing readers at the centre of the narrative history encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of Alexander the Great’s life. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
