Abstract:

In 334 BC, Alexander, king of the tiny Greek kingdom of Macedon, crossed the Bosphorus at Byzantium and headed east to the mighty Persian empire ruled by Darius III. Both Alexander and Darius had one ambition, to rule the known world. In the war that followed the winner would take all. The decisive battle was fought three years later in 331 BC on the dusty plain of Gaugamela. With new video game technology you are about to see this great battle as never before-the vast numbers of soldiers, the troop formations, how they fought and how the battle was won. Get the view the generals wished they'd had on Decisive Battles.
