  • Hugh Bowden


‘Warrior: Alexander's Army’ describes Alexander's military campaigning, which he continued throughout his reign and for which he is perhaps most famous. The title of ‘Undefeated’ is deservedly attached to him. Despite the fact that much has been written about Alexander's generalship, the evidence on which these accounts and plans are based is not easy to use; there is much about his achievements that remains a matter of guesswork. The ancient accounts of Alexander's battles and sieges were less concerned with the details of military formations and command structures, and more interested in illustrating the less obvious aspects of war.
