    An overview of Alexander's life from a military standpoint, looking at how he was able to conquer
    the known world.
    Alexander was perhaps the greatest conquering general in history. In just over a generation, his
    northern Greek state of Macedon rose to control the whole of the vast Persian Empire. In a
    dozen years Alexander took the whole of Asia Minor and Egypt, destroyed the once mighty
    Persian Empire, and pushed his army eastwards as far as the Indus. No-one in history has
    equalled his achievement. Julius Caesar, contemplating his hero's statue, is said to have wept
    because by contrast he had accomplished so little. This concise history gives an overview of
    Alexander's life from a military standpoint, from his early military exploits to the creation of his
    empire and the legacy left after his premature death.
