From the Publisher
"Whether or not Bradford has by his skillfully constructed narrative changed the way the world looks at Philip, only the reader can decide. Nevertheless, this book has for the first time enabled readers to see Philip in his whole career as the ancients saw him, without having to scramble through a dozen or more different sources. This is a significant gift to any one who would understand the Greek world of the fourth century B.C."
This book is not only of interest to the military enthusiast, who can now clearly see the military and organizational genius of the man who created the army, weapons, and tactics with which Alexander conquered Persia, but also to the instructor who wishes to add a counterpart to the traditional offerings in translation for undergraduate classes and seminars. An eminently readable and extremely useful work, which would be even more useful in paperback.
