Ancient Warfare Answers episode (152): Were Philip and Alexander invincible?
This entry was posted on November 22, 2021.
The Macedonian armies of Phillip and Alexander were almost invincible, but afterwards 'Macedonian' style armies seem to be more hit and miss (vs. Romans, Indians, Parthians, Celts etc.). Was this because Philip and Alexander’s troops were uniquely competent, or was it that the commanders after Alexander just couldn’t measure up? In short, Murray returns to Patron Juan’s question: ‘Were Philip and Alexander’s army almost invincible?’
