The Marshals of Alexander's Empire


The Marshals of Alexander's Empire
by Waldemar Heckel

444 pages pdf 3 mb

A highly detailed study of the closest friends and most trusted commanders of Alexander the Great - their career-progress, rivalry with one another, their influence on Alexander. Sheds light on some of the most dynamic individuals of the age of Alexander.

The successors of Alexander the Great were for the most part neither his closest friends nor his most prominent generals - many of these were already dead when the king himself died in 323; others died soon afterwards

But because these marshals laboured in his shadow, their careers and contributions to Alexander's success have been neglected by historians, ancient and modern. The primary aim of this book is to bring them to light.

Professor Heckel presents an interpretative prosopographical study of more than 130 officers who served Alexander the Great - and as such, a revision, continuation and expansion of many of the entries in H. Berve's Das Alexanderreich auf prosopographischer Grundlage.

The Marshals of Alexander's Empire
provides the first full discussion in English of the careers of Alexander's Macedonian officers and closest friends.
