With a small force of fifty thousand and a fleet of two hundred warships, Alexander lands in Asia at the fabled beach of ruined Troy. This is a tale of victory and tragedy, of friendship and a growing self-knowledge, as the young King of Macedon breaks two Persian armies in battles that will set him on the road to greatness, capturing the mother, wife and family of the King of Kings Darius at the bloody Battle of Issus. In Egypt, which he liberates from Persian occupation, Alexander is anointed Pharaoh. It is here, at the Oracle of Siwah, that the glory of his vision is finally revealed to him; his destiny will be to bring a light into the dark places of the world. He will not be content to merely conquer. His intention is to rule.
