 About the Book 

Although written over four hundred years after Alexanders death, Arrians Campaigns of Alexander is our best source of knowledge of the man and his deeds. Arrain had himself been a military commander, and his record of the exploits of the worlds greatest conqueror reveals sympathy for his subject, without the adulation or contempt which so often mar other histories of the time. Arrains unaffected style of writing, with its matter-of-fact tone, offsets the remarkable career and paradoxical nature of Alexander, giving us a fair, clear report about a man who was worshipped as a god in his own lifetime.
