Summary (From the publisher):

When Alexander the Great died in the swamps of Babylon, faithful generals like Antigonus and his young son, Demetrius vowed to keep his great Empire together. Demetrius devoted his life to fighting for this cause, and in doing so was given the title of 'Saviour God' by the Athenians. He was a resourceful soldier, an inventor of weapons, as well as brave and handsome—small wonder he dazzled the Ancient World with his brilliance. For political reasons he had no less than three wives at one time, although there was only on woman he loved—his mistress, Lamia.
