"Hugely experienced military historian Bill Yenne has added yet another glittering feather to his cap with this impeccably source-based account of the military Midas of the ancient world. One can only agree with General Wesley K. Clark that Alexander's legacy is enduringly informative."--Paul Cartledge, A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture at Cambridge University and author of Alexander the Great
“An excellent survey of Alexander's exploits and a vivid reminder that the geopolitical landscape hasn't changed that much over the millennia."—John Negroponte, Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer in International Affairs at Yale University
