A unique compilation of more than one thousand concise biographies of those involved in the campaigns of Alexander the Great, and the struggle for power after his death. From leading commanders in Alexander’s army to the nobles of the Persian Empire, and the many other individuals he encountered throughout his life and reign, these complete and balanced biographies are drawn from the literary and epigraphic sources of the age.

First published in 2006, this version has been expanded and substantially revised to widen the human and political landscape in which Alexander moved.

The only work of its kind, this is an essential guide to a fascinating and pivotal historical era, and to one of history’s most successful military commanders.
