Epic History TV's complete four-part history of Alexander the Great in one video. Follow the incredible story of the Macedonian king as he embarks on the total conquest of the ancient world's greatest superpower, the Persian Empire. With dramatic victories at the Granicus, Issus and Gaugamela, Alexander defeats Darius III and claims the throne of Persia. But his campaign to subdue the empire's easternmost provinces and reach the edge of the known world will take him into modern Afghanistan, Pakistan and the frontier of India, where he meets the Indian king Porus in battle at the Hydaspes. This is the complete overview of Alexander's conquests, a 10 year period of immense drama and historical significance, as the young Macedonian king's breathtaking achievements ushered in a new era in European and Middle Eastern history - the Hellenistic Age.

    A high school teacher said to his class ,by the time Alexander the great was a few years older than you he had conquered the known world, a student then said ,but he had Aristotle as a teacher, we only have you .
  • What makes him so great to me was the fact he fought alongside his men in battle. He is a TRUE leader. A REAL leader fights WITH their people in the wars THEY fought.
  • Monkey D. Richyy
    He's managed to teach more about history than all of my history teachers combined
  • Alexander was an extraordinary commander and it gives me chills just imagine how far his campaign was from his home Greece. A person to be trembled with such courage, bravery and tactical military genius.
  • Felicity Summers
    I’m 75 and none of this wonderful history was taught to me, so enjoying finally learning 😊
  • Tania Ramaki
    As a greek who lived in Alexandria Egypt I was brought up with his story and I was taught to be proud of him I feel a connection
  • Le Abdollen
    If only we got a TV series or movie series as epic as this video. I often come back to this video as it's just so damn good.
  • Michael Scott
    I remember back when this video only had 100,000 views. Now it has 12 million and it couldn't have been earned by a better channel than Epic History TV!
  • Abir Kalai
    Sir, you deserve a standing ovation for your hard work and quality content!
  • Jano
    "Alexander the Great was known not only for his ability to command but also for his ability to be undefeated"- My history teacher
  • Learning about Alexander in college gave me a midlife crisis. This man was conquering the world at the same age where I’m in a battle to not eat too many ramen packets in one day
  • Tim_of_Kent
    Such an incredible story of a great leader. Seeing a king lead charges into thick battles to relieve his troops must have been an inspiring sight at the time.
  • Athan Paris
    I was born in the Great Macedonian City of Thessaloniki-second largest and most beautiful city in Greece. 30 kilometers away is Pella-Capital of the Ancient Greek Kingdom of Macedon. Today, the area of Macedon makes up almost half the geographic area of modern Greece. Proud to be Macedonian from Mother Greece!
  • T1Adventure
    Back when a King or a General fighting with his army in an actual battle. This are the true men of war.
  • Felippe Barbosa
    Had this guy lived to 60 years old he would have conquered Eurasia. What a legend.
  • Marc Wright
    This is fabulous content, so well put together.... hasn't aged over four years!!! Well done sir! Many thanks
  • Metabreaker118
    Can we all take a few seconds to stop and appreciate the free documentaries he is creating for us 🙌
  • Davy Jones
    Crazy that if the Persians went with the Scored Earth tactic, they had a very good chance of forcing Alexander to retreat back to Greece.
