Olympias: Mother of Alexander the Great

As Christmas is approaching and I am wanting to gift myself a book, I'm intersted on some reviews for this one: Olympias: Mother of Alexander the Great by E. Carney. Is it worth? I have other book by E. Carney on Women and monarchy in Macedonia.
Would be glad on any review!

Great list. I suspect source is Heckel' s " Marshals" but very interested if there are more of them? (I' m fighting with one family as well- preparing an article)

Re: Direction of the forum

I'm note ready to say that photos is fading away (especially because I see other group of activity doing that right now).

Re: Men behind Alexander- Parmenio

Thanks! I will try to get my hands on Berve' s work!

Men behind Alexander- Parmenio

Hi! I am preparing an article about the men behind Alexander and although I have a lot of good books in my hands I stopped dead on Parmenio. A lot of articles and theories on the conspiracy of Philotas, but very little about Parmenio's family and career before Alexander. Maybe some could suggest me ...

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

i would also say- interesting... That's for short. In length- this style (and especially comments on her article) reminded me of those who always think that their nation is the mightiest one (we have such a group of people in Baltics- Balts made all the world; Leto is from the name Leti (Latvian tri...
