Empire of Alexander the Great looks at what made Alexander a brilliant military tactician and a charismatic leader. It also explores what the Eastern world learned through contact with Alexander and what Alexander brought the West from the Persian Empire. Connections in our own world to Alexander's empire include the legend of the Gordion Knot, pearls, the Egyptian metropolis of Alexandria, and the Septuagint (the first translation of the Torah from Hebrew).
