Take a journey to a vanished world with the ADVENTURES IN TIME series – stories so exciting you won’t believe they’re all true

‘Alexander’s mind was clear. It was time to go east. Time to march into Asia, to confront the Persians and to meet his destiny.’

Alexander of Macedon has one, wild dream: to rule the world. And with his childhood friends and his beloved horse Bucephalas, he sets out from his home in Ancient Greece to do just that. With historian Dominic Sandbrook as our guide, join Alexander on his incredible journey, travelling through the deserts of Egypt and over the snow-capped mountains of Persia all the way to India, defeating all who stand in his way. For anything is possible with the blessing of the gods…

The Adventures in Time series brings the past alive for twenty-first century children. These stories are every bit as exciting as those of Harry Potter or Matilda Wormwood. The only difference is they actually happened…

Weltgeschichte(n) – König der Könige: Alexander der Große

Imprint: CBJ Verlag

Publishing on: 9 November 2021

Der größte Eroberer aller Zeiten

Die Geschichte von Alexander dem Großen erzählt das Leben eines Jungen aus den Bergen Makedoniens, der sich für den Nachfahren von Zeus hielt, mit 20 Jahren König wurde und eines der größten Reiche der Geschichte schuf. Er eroberte das Persische Reich, führte seine Männer über Ägypten und Zentralasien bis nach Indien, regierte dann von Persien aus als König der Könige und starb schließlich unter mysteriösen Umständen mit nur 32 Jahren.

Dominic Sandbrook katapultiert die Leser in eine antike Welt voller mythischer Götter und sagenhafter Städte. Wir begleiten Alexander in seiner sagenumwobenen Kindheit und den Dramen seines kurzen Lebens, begegnen Charakteren wie seinem Kindheitsfreund Hephaistion, seinem Lehrer Aristoteles, seiner asiatischen Ehefrau Roxane, aber auch einfachen Leuten, die mit seinem Leben verwoben waren. So entsteht das Bild eines großen Mannes, der zugleich Visionär und Krieger, Held und Monster war.

Geschichtswissen in einer fundierten, mitreißenden und dramatischen Erzählung für Leser ab 10 Jahren. Von Historiker und Autor Dominic Sandbrook einfühlsam geschildert und in einen globalen Kontext gesetzt, ohne zu beschönigen.
