Description - The Marshals of Alexander's Empire by Waldemar Heckel

The successors of Alexander the Great were for the most part neither his closest friends nor his most prominent generals - many of these were already dead when the king himself died in 323; others died soon afterwards. But because these marshals laboured in his shadow, their careers and contributions to Alexander's success have been neglected by historians, ancient and modern. The primary aim of this book is to bring them to light. Professor Heckel presents an interpretative prosopographical study of more than 130 officers who served Alexander the Great - and as such, a revision, continuation and expansion of many of the entries in H. Berve's Das Alexanderreich auf prosopographischer Grundlage , volume 2 (Munich, 1926). The Marshals of Alexander's Empire provides the first full discussion in English of the careers of Alexander's Macedonian officers and closest friends.
