An amazing book, start to finish. The book is well researched and very detailed. What I really liked about this book is Dodge describes not only Alexander's personal life, but also his military tactics. This is a must read that will be hard to put down.Was this review helpful?

Worth the Time
Dodge did an incredible job. It was written just as well as Hannibal. One thing that I enjoy about the book is the in depth detail of his writing. Dodge gives you as much information as possible on the Alexander's campaigns. He also historically leads up to Alexander with some of the previous Greek generals,campaigns, and battles as well as some after Alexander's death. His maps go perfectly with his writing. However, the thing that you carry away from the book is the feel of Alexander's extreme will and brilliance (and often luck) that allowed him to accomplsh what he did. A great book in the study of war!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
