The Marshals of Alexander's Empire
Routledge – 1993 – 448 pages
This book presents for the first time in English a detailed study of the closest friends and most trusted commanders of Alexander the Great - their career-progress, their rivalry with one another, and their influence on Alexander. 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.
'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
