The achievements of Alexander would have been remarkable in any age. Through his dynamic personality he led the forces of a small Greek power to extraordinary feats of endurance and courage. This translation follows Alexander's story as told by his biographer Arrian; the translated extracts are linked by commentaries which continue the narrative and discuss points in the text needing explanation.
