Philip, Alexander, and Greece in Transition

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Ancient Greek Civilization

Philip, Alexander, and Greece in Transition

Taught by Professor Jeremy McInerney | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Once Philip II had conquered Greece, he used the dream of a Panhellenic crusade to unite the Greeks and conquer the Persian Empire. Philip's son, Alexander the Great, went a long way toward realizing this dream when he led Greco-Macedonian armies in the conquest of Persia and extended the Greek "empire of influence" across Asia as far as the northern marches of the Indian subcontinent.

I enjoyed this series very much. Professor McInerney is a clear speaker and a good story teller. I only wish there were more lectures in the series delving a bit deeper. But it's an excellent overview of ancient Greece.
