Into the Land of Bones : Alexander the Great in Afghanistan Paperback
Part of the Hellenistic Culture and Society series
The so-called first war of the twenty-first century actually began more than 2,300 years ago when Alexander the Great led his army into what is now a sprawling ruin in northern Afghanistan.
Frank L. Holt vividly recounts Alexander's invasion of ancient Bactria, situating in a broader historical perspective America's war in Afghanistan.
