The Death of Alexander the Great

Monday, January 02, 2012

Classicist James Romm tells the story of Alexander the Great, who united his empire and his army by the force of his will. His death at age 32 spelled the end of that unity, and Romm focuses on the dramatic saga of the empire’s collapse in his book Ghosts on the Throne: The Death of Alexander the Great and the War for Crown and Empire.
