After the murder of his father, a young Macedonian prince became one of the mightiest leaders of the Ancient World. In just over a decade Alexander the Great - an astute strategist and a courageous soldier - used his conquests to build a cast empire that stretched from Greece to Egypt, Persia and northwest India. The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations of the graphic novel create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. Opening pages provide historical context about the society in which Alexander lived and the extent of his empire. Closing pages explain what became of Alexander's empire and his legacy on modern culture. This text fits into the guidelines for Key Stage 2 History. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
