  • After the assassination of his father, the young king of Macedonia set out to conquer a massive empire. Against overwhelming odds, Alexander led his army to victories across the Persian territories of Asia Minor, Syria, and Egypt, finally reaching northwest India – all without suffering a single defeat. But he was not only a military genius, he also knew how to win people, who hailed him as savior and liberator from Persian rule. However, the many battles gradually changed Alexander’s personality.
