“I’m drinking too much” breh
wait what… i thought Alexander was never defeated… that battle looks like a clear defeat right there.
If anyone knows of loyalty and love for country then its Ariobarzanes. Persia is already conquered defeated yet he doesnt give up and gathers rest of the army and ambushes Alexanders forces.
7:21 I almost choked by laughing while eating dinner.
ALEXANDER'S EMPIRE COULD NOT SAVE ALEXANDER HIMSELF. PATHETIC.
I guess I missed it on most of these documentaries ,but the speakers name I cannot find, he is the reason i listen to this stuff ,he makes it somehow more interesting
ΕΛΛΑΔΑ = ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ
PELLA IS GREECE
Alexander was great in conquering, not building.
A big lie in 4:45 when the commentator says "thousands of Persian soldiers…" All the Persian army at the Persian gate was 700 soldiers (Bill Yenne: "Alexander the Great: Lessons from History's Undefeated General", St. Martin's Press, New York, 2010, pp. 90). The Persian army was destroyed earlier and Darius was busy finding few men around him but he couldn't. The Greek army however was about 20,000. Despite their heavy casualties, they won the battle because 700 men are not enough to defeat an army of thousands. However, more than half of the Greek army was destroyed. These are historical facts.
The time Donald Trump killed an iranian general with a drone strike.
