Confessions of Alexander
Alexander the Great
âI should be glad, Onesicritus,
to come back to life for a little while after my death to discover
how men read these present events then. If now they praise and welcome
them do not be surprised; they think, every one of them, that this
is a fine bait to catch my goodwill.â
Alexander The Great,
quoted by Lucian in âHow To Write History."
Written by historian
and biographer Ashkan Karbasfrooshan, The Confessions of Alexander
The Great: 33 Lessons in Greatness tells history through
the eyes of Alexander The Great.
Relying on the
secondary sources that form the foundation of our knowledge of
Alexander, Ashkan breaks from
the pack and offers a unique perspective into the short-lived but
tumultuous life of the young Macedonian leader.
After an illustrious
twelve-year campaign into Ancient Persia, Alexander died one month
shy of his thirty-third birthday. As such, The Confessions
of Alexander The Great is broken up into thirty-three themes,
that marked Alexander's greatness. By doing so, readers can
apply some of the factors that led to Alexander's greatness to their
own lives and challenges.
Cover to cover,
a candid, insightful and honest glimpse into the soul and mind
of the greatest military commander of all time and the most important secular figure in history.
