The Story of Alexander before he became "the Great."
As the son of Philippos, celebrated king of Macedon,
Alexandros must excel in all ways: be faster, smarter,
stronger, and more courageous. Competition defines a man's
fate in his world, loyalty rare and precious—but he finds
it in Hephaistion, one of the boys who accompanies him for
lessons under the philosopher Aristoteles. With
Hephaistion's fidelity and friendship, he learns to trust
his skills and become a leader of men.
Read the genesis of a legend, and of one of history’s most
celebrated and enduring emotional bonds.
