Alexander The Great is a book by American writer Jacob Abbott, first published in 1849. The book is aimed at children and is a biography of Alexander III, a king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon. It covers his childhood and youth and the beginning of his reign as king, his campaigns in Asia Minor, the defeat of Darius, the siege of Tyre, his time in Egypt, and the deterioration and end of Alexander. Although the book is meant for younger readers, it also serves well as an introduction to possibly one of the most famous kings of all time.

This book has 112 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1849.

Production notes: This ebook of Alexander The Great was published by Global Grey on the 23rd October 2019.
