Product description

"The most important work on Alexander the Great to appear in a long time. Neither scholarship nor semi-fictional biography will ever be the same again...The chief merit of this splendid book is perhaps the way in which it brings an ancient army to life, as it really was and moved". ("New York Review of Books"). "A volume for a considerable range of readers...It should be of interest to all students of military history before the advent of steam and, indeed, to anyone interested in movements of early population". ("Annals"). "[Engels] has achieved the apparently impossible: he has shed new and solid light on Alexander's campaigns...Rarely have I encountered as good a monograph". ("Military Affairs").
