Bring it on Alexander! We’ll stop you from going any further!
Alexander at this point?
Memnon (where was he from?)advised the Persian Commanders not to fightAlexander in a set battle because he knew how good the Macedonian army was(when had the Macedonian army previously shown that they were good)?
Instead he suggested that they withdraw and destroy all the harvests
and food so that Alexander’s army would starve. He thought they should
fight Alexander by Sea instead (Persians had a good navy)
Perhaps they Didn’t trust the Greek
Perhaps they Felt silly avoiding the fight
The Persians had a good position:
Yeah, no worries, so we’ve just had a bit of a look-see and the river isn’t too wide today. But it has picked up a lot of speed and it is rather fast flowing so it’s going to be a tough match. It will be interesting to see how Alexander’s team deals with the conditions. Persia definitely have the upper hand with their position on the bank there. Okay Folks, Watch out for how ol’ Alex reacts to these steep and muddy banks too. Back to you in the commentary box!
Memnon &Persian mercenaries (Hired Greeks)
He arranged his army in his standard battle formation:
( This meant he had both infantry and cavalry front line up agaisnt the Persians cavalry-only front line)
Alexander and Companion Cavalry on right wing
Persian mercenaries (Hired Greeks)
Greek allies (Thracian and Thessalian cavalry)
and joined the opposing team (the Persians)!
