Example text

He established a new coinage under his name, helping to improve trade throughout his empire and allowing him to pay his enormous army and finance the building of new cities and ports. Some historians have presented Alexander as a visionary who believed in the peaceful coexistence of different nations and races within his empire. They refer, for example, to the mass weddings ordered by Alexander to bring together Greeks and Persians. ) In general, though, the coexistence was anything but peaceful.

Although frequently outnumbered, he used surprise, improvisation, and the lie of the land to extract himself from the most impossible situations. He always made it a point to know the battlefield better than his opponents, and he then used that military reconnaissance to maximum advantage. He was a master at confusing the enemy regarding his intentions, he used decisiveness and speed as effective weapons, he created and maintained good lines of communication, and he encouraged his engineering corps to think creatively, resulting in battering rams, catapults, ladders, bridges, and siege towers that allowed the Macedonians to breach the most impregnable of strongholds.
