In a seemingly impossible venture, the Macedonians storm Anatolian and Persian fortresses and harbours, liberating the Greek cities of Asia, from legendary Sardis and Miletus to Halicarnassus.But the Island City of Tyre and the Towers of Gaza prove to be formidable obstacles. Undeterred, Alexanders war machine surges forth over land and sea to the mysterious land of Ægypt. And there, in the sands, lies the Oracle of Ammon, waiting to reveal an amazing truth to Alexander.
