Description

Upon the assassination of his father King Philip II in the summer of 336 BC - while making plans for an invasion of Persia - Alexander took over the reigns of power of a now united Greece. When he led his combined Macedonian and Greek army into Asia a year later he began the greatest career of military conquest in world history. In eleven short years he overcame the might of the Persian Empire and campaigned across the face of the known world. In this combination of two of Osprey's most successful titles, Men-at-Arms 148 The Army of Alexander the Great and Campaign 7 Alexander 334-323 BC: Conquest of the Persian Empire, two eminent scholars of the Classical world - Nick Sekunda and John Warry - describe in detail the make up of Alexander's army, and the course of his epic campaigns.
