Two rulers who gripped the world
Alexander the Great's conquests staggered the world. He led his army across thousands of miles, overthrowing the greatest empires of his time and building a new one in their place. He claimed to be the son of a god, but he was actually the son of Philip II of Macedon.
Philip inherited a minor kingdom that was on the verge of dismemberment, but despite his youth and inexperience, he made Macedonia dominant throughout Greece. It was Philip who created the armies that Alexander led into war against Persia. In Philip and Alexander, historian Adrian Goldsworthy shows that without the work and influence of his father, Alexander could not have achieved so much. This definitive biography tells the story of a father and son who conquered the world.
