Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great, Hannibal, and Julius Caesar were the three greatest soldier-statesmen of the ancient world. Each achieved stunning successes but faced ultimate failure. Acclaimed scholar, historian, and author Barry Strauss of Cornell University tells the story of these three great captains and outlines their ups and downs in strategy, politics, and battle while measuring the differences between myth and reality.

 A noted scholar and an award-winning teacher, Barry Strauss is chair of the department of history at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and is a leading expert on military history and on leadership. He is the author of numerous books, including his latest Masters of Command: Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar and the Genius of Leadership (Simon and Schuster, 2012) as well as The Battle of Salamis (2004), The Trojan War: A New History (2006), and The Spartacus War (2009).
