Description

Possibly the most famous commander in history, Alexander the Great never ceases to fascinate. When he led his combined Macedonian and Greek army into Asia he began the greatest military conquest in world history. In 11 years he overcame the Persian Empire, and campaigned across deserts, plains and forests to become the master of most of the known world. Fully illustrated, this book covers his campaigns, the development of his army, and the forces he defeated. His incredible campaigns are examined in detail and his victories - and the tactics that ensured them - are explained and described with the help of maps, illustrations and reconstructions that bring the epic career of one of the world's greatest generals to life.
