The Sands of Ammon, Paperback / softback Book

The Sands of Ammon Paperback / softback

Part of the Alexander series


Continuing the international bestselling saga of Alexander the Great, Valerio Massimo Manfredi's The Sands of Ammon brilliantly describes his quest to conquer Asia, the limitless domain ruled by the Great King of the Persians. In a seemingly impossible venture, the mighty Alexander and his men storm Persian fortresses and harbours, crippling King Darius's domain.

Even the legendary Halicarnassus is defeated by the Macedonian armies. But there is danger ahead. The island city of Tyre and the towers of Gaza prove to be formidable obstacles.

Embattled but undeterred, Alexander's army surges forth over land and sea to the mysterious deserts of Egypt. There, in the sands, lies the Oracle of Ammon, waiting to reveal an amazing truth to Alexander.

One that will change his already astonishing life . . .
