The Marshals of Alexander's Empire is a blend of biography and prosopography that sheds light on some of the most dynamic individuals of the age of Alexander.

Reviews

'This important book is more than a work of reference: it takes account of the sea-change in Alexander studies over the past two generations, and combines scholarly authority with accessibility' - Graham Shipley, Classical Review
