    This 'intelligent introduction' to Alexander the Great emphasizes the military, political and administrative aspects of his short but extraordinarily successful career, leaving aside speculation about his psychological motivations. Heckel begins by outlining the Macedonian background, then uses maps and battle plans to describe in detail how Alexander won his reputation as one of history's greatest commanders. Appendices give the evidence for troop numbers at key moments and the names of Alexander's officers and administrators.
