WHAT WAS SO GREAT ABOUT ALEXANDER?

A vast treasure that Alexander the Great was bringing to Greece from his conquest of India was lost in a region that is now part of Pakistan bordering the Arabian Sea. More than 10,000 of Alexander’s soldiers and camp followers lay buried in the high desert plains along with this loot of India—hidden in a tomb never to be reclaimed.

Alexander survived that ordeal and though he only lived to the age of 33 (July 256 B.C.-323 B.C.), as the King of Macedon he was the most successful military commander of ancient history, conquering most of the known world by the age of twenty-five.

While in Western and Indian literature he is known as Alexander the Great, in Middle Persian Literature he is known as Alexander the Cursed for burning the Persian capital and national library.

Alexander also has another name, Iskander of the Two Horns. In Eastern traditions he is called Dhul-Qarnayn (the two-horned one) because an image minted during his rule seemed to depict him with two ram’s horns of the Egyptian oracle god Ammon.

GALAXYPRESS, publisher of L. Ron Hubbard’s fiction works, released a of a book from the golden age series:  THE TOMB OF THE TEN THOUSAND DEAD

The story: Captain Gordon knew the expedition was folly, landing a team of American scientists near the Arabian Sea. But when a map is discovered leading to an ancient treasure of Alexander the Great, Gordon is faced with deception and hardened wastes that shed blood to protect the secrets of the map.
