Book Review – The Rise of the Seleukid Empire, 323-223 BC



This is the first book in a new series, tracing the fortunes of one of the greatest superpowers of the Ancient World. If this book is typical of the series, it will be a cracking read and a very valuable addition to the knowledge of the Ancient World. The first book has modest illustration, limited to maps and charts, but the easy narration style of the text makes this an very informative work that will appeal both to those already knowledgable in the period, and those coming into it for the first time.
