Arguably the greatest military mind that ever led his men into battle, this documentary from Kultur Video dictates the conflict, both personally and on the field of honor, of Macedonian general Alexander the Great. Historians have called him the true king of the ancient world, and his list of victories is a history lesson of climactic conquests -- the triumphs at Thebes, the occupation of Damascus, and his brilliant mastery at Gaugamela (Iraq) in 331 B.C. -- that irrevocably changed the course of history. While the moniker "great" appears liberally throughout history, this entry from the Great Generals of the Ancient Worlds shows the term is synonymous with Alexander.
