EMPIRES COME, EMPIRES GO
About the Book
This is a panorama involving strong men who lead their countries in order to achieve power and conquer territory, supposedly, to last forever. Their dreams have sent them far and wide in order to spread their influence and fame. They are driven by ego, brutality, a desire for wealth and a lust for being idolized. Numerous lives have needlessly been lost and mass destruction has occurred, but their dreams, generally, have been eroded or short-lived. None of the empires of yesterday exist any longer.
