Sinopsis:

"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. . . .Engels at last uses all the archaeological work done in Asia in the past generation and makes it accessible. . . . Careful analyses of terrain, climate, and supply requirements are throughout combined in a masterly fashion to help account for Alexander's strategic decision in the light of the options open to him...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: the hours it took for simple operations of washing and cooking and feeding animals; the train of noncombatants moving with the army. . . . this is a book that will set the reader thinking. There are not many books on Alexander the Great that do."— New York Review of Books

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
