Alexander the Great spent virtually all his adult life at war and has often been acclaimed as one of history’s greatest military commanders. But he was also insecure and unstable, flying into uncontrollable rages and pursuing flawed strategy because of his obsession with personal glory. In this reappraisal of Alexander’s character, the author considers whether such alarming behaviour can be explained as a symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder which resulted from his extended exposure to violence and danger.
