Synopsis

God of War The Epic Story of Alexander the Great by Christian Cameron

The story of how Alexander the Great conquered the world - first crushing Greek resistance to Macedonian rule, then destroying the Persian Empire in three monumental battles, before marching into the unknown and final victory in India - is a truly epic tale that has mesmerised countless generations of listeners. He crammed more adventure into his thirty-three years than any other human being before or since.

Reviews

The more Cameron's 700-page story progresses, the more impressive it becomes. Detail is piled upon detail to reconstruct the Alexandrian world... brilliantly evoked. Cameron has risen to the challenge of creating a portrait of Alexander that matches - and often eclipses - those of earlier novelists. -- Nick Rennison SUNDAY TIMES 20120212 'This saga of daring, heroism, vanity and monumental battles reveals a man who believed himself invincible.
CHOICE 20120201 It

's wonderfully descriptive, the characters are fascinating and above all else it's the story of Alexander that everyone should read... Finally add to this Christian's wonderful writing style, with cracking prose, a wonderful sense of pace and when backed with an instantly identifiable writing style, it's a book that is going to take a hell of a lot to beat this year especially in the award season, and lets face it, that's saying something considering how early this one's out. FALCATA TIMES 20120105'
