Most of these Diadochi Successors were consummate professionals who had learnt the art of war under Alexander or even his father, Philip. Few died a peaceful death and the last survivors of this tough breed were still leading their armies against each other well into their seventies. Colourful characters, epic battles, treachery and subterfuge make this a period with great appeal to anyone interested in ancient history and ancient warfare in particular.
The wars shaped the map from the Balkans to India for the next couple of centuries. Products Authors Categories Series.

Evans of the UK writes: "I've been interested in Alexander the Great for many years, but I've always been disappointed with the lack of books on what occured after his death. Usually in Alexander biographies the aftermath is only mentioned in passing, and if anyone wants to know what became of Alexander's successors they usually have to get hold of expensive works like Waldemar Heckel's 'The Marshals of Alexander's Empire'. I was therefore looking forward to reading this book on Alexander's successors as it was the only cheap book on the subject I could find.
I was definately not disappointed with the purchase as this book is well researched and very readable.
The book begins straight after Alexander's death as the Diadochi argue and fight over his corpse, with Perdiccas rising to the top.
