Throughout the course of history, there are few who can claim the notable feat of having conquered the known world by the relatively tender age of 25 -- but then again not even the greatest military leaders of the 21st century can compare their lives or careers to that of Alexander the Great -- one of history's most notorious and debated conquerors. It was in the year 334 B.C. that the then-20-year-old King Alexander of Macedonia swore that he would bring the farthest reaches of the world under one domain, and over the course of the next decade he nearly accomplished his goal before succumbing from wounds sustained in battle at the age of thirty-two. Featuring state-of-the-art computer graphics combined with meticulously researched reenactments and the expertise of the world's most renowned scholars, this look into the life of Alexander the Great goes where no previous documentary has dared to journey.
