Everything you need to understand or teach Anabasis Alexandri by Arrian.
The author of the Campaigns of Alexander writes during the second century AD, about four hundred years after the fact. Arrian's full name is Lucius Flavius Arrianus, aka Xenophon, and he comes from a wealthy Greek family. He is a recognized historical authority on the life and times of Alexander the Great (July 20, 356-June 10, 323 BC). Aubrey de Selincourt translates the book and J.R. Hamilton adds footnotes to clarify and point out certain disputable facts, largely having to do with the names of places, geography and the numbers of troops involved in the battles.
Alexander begins his campaigns after the assassination of his father and he gains the throne of Macedonia. At twenty years of age, Alexander enlists as many Greeks as he can for his first set of adventures, quelling all opposition to him before making his way to Asia.
