First Sentence

"In the winter of 328 B.C., passing through the rugged mountains of Sogdiana, deep in Central Asia, Alexander the Great and his Macedonian army approached the Rock of Arimazes, an impregnable fortress looming over icy, treacherous perpendicular cliffs, accessible only by a steep and easily defended trail."
