Child of a Dream Summary

Child of a Dream by Valerio Massimo Manfredi

Who could have been born to conquer the world other than a god? A boy, born to a great king - Philip of Macedon - and his sensual queen, Olympias, Alexander became a young man of immense, unfathomable potential. Under the tutelage of the great Aristotle and with the friendship of Ptolemy and Hephaiston, he became the mightiest and most charismatic warrior, capable of subjugating the known world to his power.

This is a marvellous insight into one of history's greatest characters and his quest to conquer the civilised world.
