Dodge amply illustrates through this detailed history of the nature of warfare in the ancient world why both his contemporaries and later historians and soldiers held up Alexander as being one of the greatest commanders of all time.Theodore Ayrault Dodge was the paramount American military historian of the nineteenth century and an unparalleled biographer of some of historys greatest commanders and generals. Dodge fought in the Union Army in some of the Civil Wars fiercest and costliest engagements, until he lost his right leg at Gettysburg. These experiences provided him with insights on the realities of warfare that are sometimes lacking in the work of purely academic or armchair military historians.
