about

This book tells us that Alexander of Macedon was not great. He was not undefeated. He was defeated repeatedly in present-day Afghanistan and Pakistan. He and his mercenaries ran away to save their lives after a series of crushing defeats. These defeats in battles sapped his and his Macedonian army's desire to fight. He came to conquer the lands of present-day Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. His armies were devastated by the independent republican and princely tribes and cities who resisted him. He was unable to advance any further and chose to escape with his life and the lives of the remaining Macedonians who did not wish to die in distant lands. The city of Multan, in present-day southern Punjab, Pakistan, should take pride in the fact that it killed Alexander the Macedonian aka Alexander the Great, who was not able to fight again, after his mortal injury that crippled and ended his fighting career. The Mallis (also called Mullhis) should also take pride in that they were the ones who killed one of the greatest megalomaniacs of history.
