PRAISE FOR PHILIP AND ALEXANDER: 'As successful in meeting its ambitions as Philip's kingship, as sweeping as Alexander's conquests' Tom Holland. 'Belongs on the (sturdy) shelf of any reader interested in military, political or social history' Minerva Magazine. 'By pairing the two giants of Macedonia, Goldsworthy helps the reader understand Alexander's life all the better, and sheds light on the achievements and character of Philip' Aspects of History. 'Sterling scholarship, engaging prose, insightful analysis, and unbiased assessment' -- Victor Davis Hanson
