Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was arguably the greatest military strategists, tactician and ruler in world History. This book provides the wisdom and secrets of this great empire builder, demonstrating how they can be applied to conquer today’s challenges.
At the age of 20, Alexander ascended to the throne of his father’s kingdom. By the age of 23 he had defeated Persia, his nation’s greatest enemy. And by the time of his death, aged 33, his armies had conquered virtually the entire known world, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the foothills of India, including the lands of modern-day Iraq and Afghanistan.
Alexander’s achievements have inspired and influenced a great number of past and current military, political and business leaders.
Blending insights from his years of business experience with his lifelong study of Alexander, Partha Bose interweaves a gripping biography with compelling analyses of the strategies, tactics and leadership approaches of successful institutions – including Dell, GE, Honda, IKEA, the Harvard Law School, and the East India Company – and individuals, such as Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D Roosevelt, Bernard Montgomery, Gandhi, Jack Welch and Lou Gerstner.
This is a provocative and invaluable book for leaders, and readers, in all fields, everywhere.
